Can You Say Cheers in Every Language?

Do You Know Your Drink Toasts Around the World?

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!

8/12! I guessed on most of them. I'm a fan of saying "salud," I just like the way it sounds!

I didn't know they used "cin cin" in Portuguese, I've only ever heard it from Italians! Webtender says in Brazil they use Saúde... but meh, I was lousy at this anyway lol
