Do you know what…

French people say when they toast?

 

Santé Prospérité Bonheur !

 It means “Health Prosperity Happiness!”

We say it every time we toast!

Or you can say the short version: “Santé!

Apparently, this habit comes from antiquity. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, during rituals, Greeks and Romans offered sacred liquids (wine or blood) to the Gods with a wish.

They wished for a long life or good health!
