Good morning, Lovelies!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was just as I designed it: very restful.
While I was away, I enjoyed several group dinners and there's been a little something bugging me for a while:
When enjoying a toast, what is the correct approach to participation? So I did a bit of digging and here's what I've found...
Clinking of glasses after a toast can be done in a variety of manners depending on the country, culture, and level of formality. In some countries, to show respect to someone, you would hold your glass lower when about to clink. In other countries, clinking of glasses is not done. In certain cultures, everyone clinks together in the center of the table.Basically, in the United States, glasses are clinked at weddings, parties, and casual dinners.
Phew! I've not broken any social rules.
Do you 'clink' or not? Any particular reason for how you enjoy a toast?
