TO RAISE A TOAST: meaning and examples

Good morning, If you haven't seen the Ziggurat Christmas card yet (with sound), please click on the following link: ***************************************** Today's expression is: to raise a toast It means: to lift your glass (usually containing a drink like wine or cava) and express a wish or desire for success, happiness or other good news. Someone might give a speech (discurso) at the moment of the toast (when you lift or raise your glass), but it is also common to simply say Cheers! and "clink" your glasses together. Example 1 All the guests raised a toast to the newly-wedded couple, wishing them happiness in their new life together. Example 2 Whenever we sit down to a big holiday meal at my house, we always raise a toast to the cook. After all, without his/her efforts, nobody would be eating! Example 3: The Ziggurat team would like to raise a toast and wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
