Sorry but Muslims do not celebrate Easter, I never heard it said. However, there are many Christian Arabs, so I am certain the phrase does exist. Hopefully, one of my Arabic speaking Brothers or sisters will be able to say it in Arabic.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

In Bulgaria we don't actually say "Happy Easter", but we greet each other with the phrase "Hristos Voscrese!" which means "Jesus Christ resurrected!" The official religion in Bulgaria is Orthodox Christianity and we celebrate Easter one week after the Catholics.

Jews don't celebrate Easter, so there isn't really a Hebrew phrase, I guess a generic "hag sameah" - happy holidays would fit though. Or I'm guessing that the few Hebrew speaking Christians might wish each other Pes-ha sameah - Happy Easter.

This week Jews will celebrate Passover, so the seasonal Hebrew greeting is:

Pesah kasher vesameah - a happy and kosher Passover.

or in Yiddish one might also wish someone

A zissen Peysah - a sweet Passover

In Georgia, the Baptist churches celebrate Easter at the same time as the Orthodox church, which is next Sunday.

You could say giloc'av(t) aghdgomas, but the usual phrase is k'riste aghdga, which means "Christ is risen!"
