Is there a traditional or common greeting for Ramadan?

People who celebrate Christmas routinely wish each other "Merry Christmas". At Hanukkah we say "Happy Hanukkah," etc. Do Moslems have a greeting for Ramadan? Do they wish each other "Happy Ramadan" or "Joyous Ramadan" or something similar?

I'm looking for an English phrase. I thought that made it about English. – Jay Dec 27 '11 at 4:00
