    what do you wish during the Holy Week on Easter Day and some days after?" Happy Easter" on Easter Day or before? Do you say "Many happy returns " or not? "Christ is Risen" " Risen Indeed"

    Happy Easter To Everyone!!

    Re: Easter wishes

    We may say 'Happy Easter' on Easter Day itself, but nor on any other day.

    We say 'Many happy returns' only on someone's birthday.

    I'll leave it to a Christian to answer your final question.

    Re: Easter wishes

    Only Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter on this day.

    "Happy Easter to all who celebrate it!" will do.

    Is it Easter somewhere today? Easter Sunday in the UK this year was on March 27th.

    Re: Easter wishes

    The priest's declaration 'Christ is risen!' and the congregation's response 'He is risen indeed!' are only used in church services on Easter Day and for the following few days of Eastertide.

    Yes, the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates Easter Sunday today. It still follows the Julian calendar while the rest of Christianity uses the Gregorian calendar.
