Newlyweds everywhere, along with all of their guests, are raising a glass to health, love and happiness. But how did the idea of clinking glasses together even begin?
The origin of toasting
There are a few theories behind the start of the toast. It was said that the ancient Greeks would toast as a way of ensuring that the beverage had not been poisoned. Clinking the glasses together would cause the drinks to spill into others. The idea behind it was that if one person’s drink was poisoned, then all the rest of them would be as well. Offering up a toast meant showing your good faith as a host.
Another theory is derived from the Roman practice of dipping burnt bread in bad wine, hence the word “toast.” The bread would help to reduce the acidity of bad vino, making it much more enjoyable to drink. It eventually became a way of celebrating people, and the guest of honor would be the one receiving the wine filled with bread.
