For Orthodox Christians Easter is supposed to be reflection on the death of Christ and not a celebration - therefore you should never say chestit or vesela!


On Good Friday perhaps, but the Man only died briefly before nipping down to Hades to liberate Adam and Eve and the rest of the human race to date - the so called Anastasis - so I suspect the third day must be as joyous for Orthodox Christians as for any other denomination.

On theological points my fellow-Scot, gimlet is perfectly orthodox. Easter Sunday is the time for rejoicing after the celebration of Black Friday, which is a time for solemnity.

Happy Easter all.

Had a boring day with no chocolate egg from my husband! Think I will sack him!

The (Orthodox Christian) Bulgarians that I wished a happy Easter to seemed pleased enough. :)
