Just a few days to go until Easter. There's no better time than Holy Week to have a go at some Old English Easter phrases:
þonc sie Gode for þissere Eastre*
[Thonk see-yuh Go-du for this-er-uh Ay-as-truh"]
Thanks be to God for this Easter
I reckon that just about counts for 'Happy Easter'...
And you should also have a go at one that's a bit longer; a couple of lines from the Dream of the Rood:
Deað he þær byrigde; hwæðere eft Dryhten aras
mid his miclan mihte mannum to helpe.
["day-ath hay there boo-rig-du; hwath-er-uh eft Drich-ten ar-ras
mid his mitch-lan mich-tuh man-um toe help-uh"]
He tasted death there [in the grave]; nevertheless, afterwards the Lord arose
to help mankind with his great might.
*Warning: the words are all pukka Old English but I made up the phrase.
