<p>Toasts are an essential role for any St. Patrick's Day celebration. They serve as a link amidst the formal ceremony and a less formal atmosphere of the coming celebration. The St. Patrick's Day toast allows family members and friends to talk their hearts out. Remember Abraham Lincoln's words from his inaugural address, and you will never go wrong, "With malice toward none; with charity for all." A toast is a wish, and whether you believe in karma or not, it is always better to wish good than ill; far better to follow Shakespeare and "drink down all unkindness."<br /><br />That said, we've found it helps us when offering toasts to use the standard pattern that Colonial-era drinkers used. It's a simple, two-part format in which you first propose the object of the toast and then either explain why it's worth toasting or offer a wish on its behalf. This will then lead into the toast at which point you should finish by fully drinking your beverage which is hopefully some hearty Guinness!<br /><br />And now for some time weathered St. Patrick's Day and Irish Toasts to impress your family and friends during your St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Cheers!<br /><br /><strong><a href="../news.php?item=1160&amp;skipmobiledetection=true">Continue Reading</a> for the Irish Toasts!</strong><br /><br /><br /></p>
