After liturgy, when we go up to venerate the cross, my priest tells me "Happy Feast", and I respond with the same.  but, last week he said "Spretchen Brasnik"  or something like that to me. I notice he says it to foreigners in their native languages.  sometimes, he'll yell "Sprazniko" at us.

what language is "Spretchen Brasnik"?  what is the appropriate responce? 

I feel a bit bad, as I "left him hangin' " , out of surprise.

Празник praznik means holiday, I think. честит празник is 'happy holiday/feast'. Don't know about spretchen.

I thought it's strange when our priest says that, because I'm not used to it.  He actually says "With the Feast," which is a translation of S' Praznikom.

That's correct.  I usually hear "Christ is in our midst"

..however, we also hear "Eez Praznikom", which means "...with the Feast Day".    (Greeting you with the Feast Day.)

Sunday's are always a "holiday", and therefore, a Feast Day.

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

You can always ask him "say what?"

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
