In most traditionally Christian countries, there is a ritual religious greeting, called a Paschal greeting, that is commonly heard at Easter: some variation of "Christ is risen!", to which one responds "He is risen indeed!". In English this is rarely used as a greeting by strangers outside of a church setting. Happy Easter! is a more secular less religiously loaded greeting, and is used much more commonly in English-speaking countries. Many Eastern European languages to not have an equivalent to "Happy Easter!", and the paschal greeting is used instead.
