Ukrainian Easter

There are a number of countries and cultures celebrating Easter today, including Ukrainians – both Catholic and Orthodox.

Jacques Hnizdovsky created this vintage Ukrainian Easter design.

The writing in the print says: Христос Воскрес! (Khrystos Voskres!), to which people will respond: Воїстину Воскрес! (Voyistynu Voskres!).

This means Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen! The interaction is heard frequently at Easter, and for some weeks afterwards.
