Хрїстóсъ воскрéсе! Воистину воскресе!
Good for the Russian Orthodox

And to think, it's almost illegal to wish someone Merry Christmas or Happy Easter here in America.

Christos voskrese! Voistinu voskrese!
Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

Better than the seventh inning stretch here in the U.S.!

The Paschal greeting is an Easter custom among Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Eastern Catholic Christians, as well as among some Roman Catholic and Protestant Christians. Instead of “hello” or its equivalent, one is to greet another person with “Christ is Risen!”, and the response is “Truly, He is Risen” – Wikipedia

Helmet tip to Father Gonzales.

That formerly hated Russian Communist state now has crucifixes (Russian style, of course) in its public schools' classrooms!
