The Paschal Greeting

The Orthodox paschal greeting par excellence – used from Pascha till Ascension Thursday – is:
Christ is Risen!
To which you respond:
Indeed, He is Risen!

For other languages, see here.

Some Greeks also say Kalo pascha or Kali anastasi for Happy Easter. (Resurrection is Anastasis, which is also the Greek name for the Jerusalem church the West calls the Holy Sepulchre.)
