Learn how to say Happy Easter in Russian by watching this video:
There is a tradition for Russian Orthodox to greet each other the following way when meeting on Easter:
(1) The first person would say “ХРИСТОС ВОСКРЕСЕ” meaning “Christ is/has risen” pronounced as HRESS-TOHS VAHS-KRYE-SYE
(2) The second person would respond with “ВОИСТИНУ ВОСКРЕСЕ” meaning “Truly Christ is risen” pronounced as VAH-EES-TEE-NOO VAHS-KRYE-SYE
Another way to congratulate with Easter is to follow a common pattern for any other holiday when we literally say “With + name of the holiday.” So in this case we’ll say “С ПАСХОЙ!” meaning “I congratulate you with Easter” pronounced as S PAHS-HUY
