Please post your finest toasts here, so that we may all benefit from the shared knowledge of those sophisticates more witty and charming than we, ourselves, are.

I wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
A pocket full of money
And a cellar full of beer!




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's to us all,
God bless us every one!

Source: Tiny Tim's toast from A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Peace and plenty for many a Christmas to come.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At Christmas play and make good cheer
For Christmas comes but once a year.

Source: Thomas Turner


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, thrice welcome, Christmas!
Which brings us good cheer,
Mince pies and plum pudding-
Strong ale and strong beer!



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then here's to the heartening wassail,
Wherever good fellows are found;
Be its master instead of its vassal,
And order the glasses around.

Source: Ogden Nash


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's to holly and ivy hanging up,
And to something wet in every cup.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Merry Christmas this December
To a lot of folks I don't remember.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

May you never be without a drop at Christmas.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
A pocket full of money
And a cellar full of beer!



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know I've wished you this before
But every year I wish it more,
A Merry Christmas.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's wishing you more happiness
Than all my words can tell,
Not just alone for Christmas
But for all the year as well.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Christmas is here,
Merry Old Christmas,
Gift-bearing, heart-touching, joy-brining Christmas,
Day of grand memorie, king of the year.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At Christmas play and make good cheer
For Christmas comes but once a year.

Source: Thomas Tusser


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Christmas wish -
May you never forget
what is worth remembering
or remember
what is best forgotten.

While not quite a toast, I've always been fond of a particular Scottish saying at tea time:

Some ha'e meat and cannae eat.
Some can eat but want it.
But we ha'e meat, and we can eat.
And so the lord be thank it.
Amen.
"Even if a submarine should work by a miracle, it will never be used. No country in this world would ever use such a vicious and petty form of warfare!"

...**** you, here's to me

Amarantha. Nice to see you join in here. Whilst I am all in favor of engaging in a bit of bawdiness and ribaldry, Even I winced a bit at the last line of your toast. Might you edit that "one" word for the sake of decorum and out of respect to the ladies present on the board?

Technically, I am a Woman of Refined Vices. But I do not object to masculine forms of address. Now sheol (my fiance), he might object... :P
Lead me not into temptation; I can find it myself.

My sincere apology for my myopic assumption on your gender. I'm reminded of what happens when one "assumes".

Indeed, I consider you a Woman of Refined Vices.

"Here's to you as good as you are,
And here's to me, as bad as I am;
And as bad as I am, and as good as you are,
I'm as good as you are, as bad as I am."
~Old Scottish Toast

-------------------------

"If all be true that I do think,
There are five reasons why men drink,
Good wine, a friend, or being dry,
Or lest we should be by-and-by,
Or any other reason why."
~Henry Aldrich (by way of Harry Craddock)

-------------------------

"To those merry souls assembled here, who make eating & drinking a pleasure;
Who achieve contentedness long before capacity;
And who, whenever they drink, prove able to carry it, enjoy it and remain gentlemen."
~Trader Vic

-------------------------

"There's many a toast I'd like to say,
If only I could drink it;
So fill your glass to anything,
And thank the Lord I'll drink it!"
~Wallace Irwin

-------------------------

"Let the toast pass,
Drink to the lass,
I'll warrent she'll prove,
An excuse for the glass."
~Richard Sheridan

And of course,
Cheers!

Glad you like it (& glad to be here)! That's one of my favorites as well - 'Vic is very much my personal hero...

Oh it occurs to me that I'd left a portion of that last toast I'd posted out (I always forget that part when making that toast anyway). It should read:

"Here's to the maiden of bashful sixteen;
Here's to the widow of fifty;
Here's to the flaunting, extravagent queen;
And here's to the housewife that's thrifty!
Let the toast pass;
Drink to the lass;
I'll warrent she'll prove an excuse for the glass!"
~Richard Sheridan, "The School for Scandal" (by way of W.C. Whitfield's Here's How! - Mixed Drinks, 1941)

Cheers!

I just realized i haven`t made any toast yet..

So here are my toasts:

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me, and just be my friend.

The Lord gives us our relatives,
Thank God we can choose our friends.

And here is “Manuia!” which is “Tahitian for “cheers!

"My friends are the best friends
Loyal, willing and able.
Now let’s get to drinking!
All glasses off the table!"

"May you always have a clean shirt,
a clear conscience,
and enough coins in your pocket to buy a pint!"
********
"Here's to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A beautiful love and an honest one.
A good drink-- and another one!" (edited from the original)
*******
"Oh, here's to other meetings,
And merry greetings then;
And here's to those we've drunk with,
But never can again. "
*******
"May thy life be long and happy,
Thy cares and sorrows few;
And the many friends around thee
Prove faithful, fond and true. "
*******
"Here's to love and unity,
Dark corners and opportunity. "
********
"May those now love
Who never loved before.
May those who've loved
Now love the more. "
