Time to Toast - Holiday Tip #2

Inevitably at some point during a holiday celebration there’s a moment
when someone decides to offer a toast. To recall the good moments of the year ending or express hopes for the year to come. To thank someone for
great work, good spirit, or just wish everyone happy holidays.

When it’s your turn to offer a toast remember:
Keep it short
Think about what you plan to say
Lift your glass as you speak
Do not tap the glass with your knife or fork to get everyone’s attention, just stand up and hold your glass up
You do not need to clink glasses after the toast, simply take a sip

And if the toast is to honor you:
Don’t lift your class until the toast ends
Don’t drink (drinking to honor yourself isn’t a great idea)
Acknowledge the toast by lifting your glass and offering a few words of thanks

Small note: For those whose only liquid with a meal is a glass of water, you
can still participate in toasting. It’s the thought that’s important, not what’s
in your glass.
