Did You Know? A toast is a ritual during which a drink is taken as an expression of honor or goodwill. The term may be applied to the person or thing so honored, the drink taken, or the verbal expression accompanying the drink.
Thus, a person could be "the toast of the evening" also known as a Toastmaster, for whom someone "proposes a toast" to congratulate and for whom a third person "toasts" in agreement. The ritual forms the basis of the literary and performance genre, of which Mark Twain's "To the Babies" is a well-known example.
The toast as described in this article is rooted in Western culture, but certain cultures outside that sphere have their own traditions in which consuming a drink is connected with ideas of celebration and honor. While the physical and verbal ritual of the toast may be elaborate and formal, merely raising one's glass towards someone or something and then drinking is essentially a toast as well, the message being one of goodwill towards the person or thing indicated.
Did someone say champagne?
We were honored to have Bob and Donna do the toast (
Donna married us seven weeks ago! 7/28/2021)
Thank you all for joining us!
With our wonderful daughters!
Time to cut the cake; I called upon my favorite surgeon!
Mary guides the knife and saves the cake.
With surgical precision a tiny piece is extracted!
She makes it look easy!
Nary a calorie is ruined, she saved them all!
"Please, can I have a little piece?"
Not a single crumb is lost in the exchange
The best part is our girls keep the glasses filled!
We invite everyone to waltz with us!

The place is rocking!
YeHaw, the new word of the day!
