Today, Orthodox Christians around the world (myself included) celebrate Orthodox Easter (also called Pascha in many traditions). This year was a big offset from Western Easter because of the difference between the Gregorian Calendar used in the West and the Julian Calendar used by Orthodox Christians for calculating the date of Easter. Although the dates are different, it's the same celebration. 

The traditional greeting used by the Orthodox during the Paschal Season (from Easter to Pentecost) is "Christ is Risen" and the traditional response is "Indeed he is risen." Here's that same greeting from around the world:
