The onset of Summer means many things: road trips, picnics, barbecues, watermelon . . . and weddings. Rarely does a June or July pass by when I'm not at or in a wedding celebration. Since lots of wedding toasts are to be had this time of year, I thought I'd put your multicultural toasting skills to the test. Do you know how to say "Cheers!" in every language? There's only one way to find out!Take the Quiz
Earlier this week we kicked off travel week with a post on how to toast in various different languages. If you found that fun, then you are really going to enjoy these cheers wine glasses from CB2. The set of 6 is available for $19.95 and come with the following phrases: Prost, Salud, Le'Chaim, Cheers, Kampai, and A Votre Sante. This modern dishwasher-safe glassware would act as an amazing conversation starter at any party.
