This week is the remembrance of the Crucificion and Rebirth of Jesus Christ. Below are words related to #Easter you will hear across the #Greek #Orthodox Diaspora:
Kalo Pascha = Κάλω Πάσχα = Happy Easter Kyriaki tou Pascha = Κυριακή του Ράσχα = Easter Sunday Nistia = Νηστείας = Fasting (for Lent) Megali Evdomada = Μεγάλη Εβδομάδα = Holy Week Megali Pempti = Μεγάλη Πέμπτη = Holy Thursday Megali Paraskevi = Μεγάλη Παρασκευή = Good Friday Pascha = Πάσχα = Easter Sarakosti = Μεγάλη Σαρακοστή = Lent
As you may know the Greek communities all over the world take this period very seriously so when you Meet and Greet Greek friends and neighbours, this will be impressive if you can say to them on Easter Sunday:
[b]Christos Anesti [/b]- Christ is Risen!
And the correct response if they say it to you is [b]Aleethos anesti[/b] ("truly risen").
Also, at any time from Holy Thursday onwards you can say the usual [b]chronia polla[/b] ("many years") to which the response is [b]epeesees[/b] ("likewise") and/or [b]too chronoo[/b] ("and next year").
[i]Note that "ch" is pronounced as in Scottish "loch".[/i]
As a postscript: the dates for the Western Christian Churches and the Eastern Churches are not always the same year by year. Check out here their respective dates in each year’s calendar: http://britsincrete.net/faq/greek-easter-dates
