Toasting is not nearly as common as it once was. However, the polished presenter should have a few short toasts ready to go if and when the occasion arises. Here are a few fun toasts and a few touching ones too:
=> To your birthday, glass held high. Glad it's you that's older not I.
=> Heres to you. No matter how old you are, you don't look it.
=> Twas the month after Christmas, and Santa had flit; Came there
tidings in the mail, which read: Please remit.
=> Here's to the Holly with its bright red berry. Here's to Christmas, let's make it merry.
=> Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you diet.
=> A full belly, a heavy purse, and a light heart.
=> Here's to a friend who knows me well and likes me anyway.
=> May the friends of our youth be the companions of our old age.
Banquet speech ending:
=> Good day, good health, good cheer, good night!
=> Here's to your health. You make age curious, time furious, and all of us envious.
=> As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never face the wrong way.
=> May your luck be like the capital of Ireland. Always Dublin.
=> May all our troubles in the coming year be as short as our New Year's resolutions.
=> In the year ahead may we treat our friends with kindness and our enemies with generosity.
=> Marriage is an institution, but who wants to live in an institution. --Groucho Marx
=> May for "better or worse" be far better than worse.
To close this section I would like to tell you that I feel like aloaf of bread. Wherever I go, they toast me.
