Wedding ToastAs the head of the family, you are at the heart of Christmas celebrations. The family sits down for the cozy Christmas dinner, with anticipation and cheer, looking up to you as you raise your glass to a toast. This is the time where you rise to the occasion, and deliver words that are memorable, and will set forth a tradition for generations to follow.


Here are some famous, time-tested toasts which you could consider for the evening:


Joy, Joy (Scottish Christmas Toast)

May God shower joy upon us, my dear family.
Christmas brings us all good things.
God give us grace to see the New Year;
and if we do not increase in numbers
may we at all events not decrease.

 On Happiness

Wishing you more happiness
Than all my words can tell,
Not just alone for Christmas
But for all the year as well.

 On Peace and Prosperity

Peace and plenty for many a Christmas to come. (Irish Christmas Blessing )

 May peace and plenty be the first
To lift the latch to your door,
And happiness be guided to your home
By the candle of Christmas.

 For a long life

May you live as long as you Wish,
And have all you Wish or long as you live.
This is my Christmas Wish for You.

 Toasts with Religious Significance

The light of the Christmas star to you,
The warmth of home and hearth to you,
The cheer and good will of friends to you,
The hope of a childlike heart to you,
The joy of a thousand angels to you,
The love of the Son and Godís peace to you.

 To all the days here and after,
 May they be filled with fond memories, happiness, and laughter. 

May the Lord keep you in his hand and never close his fist too tight on you,
And may the face of every good news and the back of every bad news be toward us in the New Year.

For each petal on the shamrock this brings a wish your way,
Good health, good luck, and happiness for today and every day. 

May the blessings of light be upon you,
Light without and light within.
And in all your comings and goings,
May you ever have a kindly greeting from them you meet along the road. 

May the joys of today be those of tomorrow. The goblets of life hold no dregs of sorrow.

May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune ere bestowed, and may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.
