To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we all should know a few suitable toasts…. Here is a famous Irish saying to start:
“May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you
In the palm of his hand.”
To add to the spirit of the occasion, here are ten of our favourite toasts:
May you always have a clean shirt, a clear conscience, and enough coins in your pocket to buy a pint!
May the blessings of each day be the blessings you need most,
May the most you wish for be the least you get,
May the Lord keep you in His Hand and never close His fist too tight.
Always remember to forget
The troubles that passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.
May you always be blessed with walls for the wind,
a roof for the rain, a warm cup of tea by the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all that your heart might desire.
May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.
May you live to be a hundred years, with one extra year to repent.
May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven
half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.
I drink to your health when I’m with you,
I drink to your health when I’m alone,
I drink to your health so often,
I’m starting to worry about my own
A toast to your coffin. May it be made of 100 year old oak. And may we plant the tree together, tomorrow.
Here’s to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold pint– and another one!
