Easter Greetings

Easter greetings to all today! Orthodox Christians greet one another on Easter with the phrase "Χριστὸς ἀνέστη!" or "Christ is risen".

Those greeted respond with "Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!" or "He is risen indeed," affirming the declaration.

The custom is also observed in the West among Catholics, Lutherans and Anglicans.
