A Toast For All Seasons
The custom of toasting has been around for thousands of years. Why the word “toast”? As the story goes, a “noted beauty” of Bath, England, was seen bathing in public, when an admirer — taken by her loveliness — filled a cup with the bathwater and drank it in her honor! Soon after, another admirer (admittedly half-cocked) declared his admiration for the lady, but his revulsion for the bath water. So, instead, he offered to eat the toast in her honor. And thus, the term stuck.
Here are some traditional toasts for your celebrations.
Coming of Age
May the strength of three be in your journey.
May your bank account always be bigger than your troubles.
If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever.
When the roaring flames of your love have burned down to embers, may you find that you’ve married your best friend.
May the most baby wishes be the least baby gets.
May our home always be too small to hold all of our friends.
You’re not as young as you used to be. But…you’re not as old as you’re going to be.
May the winds of fortune sail you, May you sail a gentle sea. May it always be the other guy who says, “this drink’s on me.”
Here’s to those that wish us well, and those who don’t can go to hell.
