Tarun, You never cease to amaze me. Hats off to your enterprising nature!

Here's some interesting information I found on drinking toasts.

All communities in the world have drinking toasts. The Irish have been believed to start the trend of proposing toasts in gatherings, however the practice can be traced back to the earliest times when The Moguls in India and the Vikings in Scandinavia drank to the honor of fellow warriors or of women they wooed and loved.

A toast, literally, is orating a phrase, sentence or even entire pieces of poetry and the act of raising a glass and drinking in honor of or to the health of a person or thing or even an event.

Besides the more than customary “Cheers!!”, there are in fact a great deal of drinking toasts , mostly ones whose origins are unknown, which do the rounds in parties, pubs and bars all across the world. Why and how the word ‘cheers’ came about is not known but there are in fact a lot of people who have different opinions on the origin and the reason.

Here is a list of toasts to help you say the linguistically correct thing when you are traveling :
French …….. “A votre sante!”
Italian ……... “ Alla Salute!”
British……… “Cheers!”
Hungarian…. “Egé szé gé re!”
Japanese…… “Kanpai!”
Polish……… “Na Zdrowie!”
Russian……. “Za vashe zdorovye!”
Greek……… “Yasas!”
Chinese…… “Wen Lie!”
Irish……….. “Slainte!”
Swedish…… “Skal!”
Brazilian….. “Saúde!”
Spanish…… “Salud!”
German…… “Prosit!”
Zulu(Africa). “Ooogy Wawa!”
