WHAT IS YOUR HAPPINESS? HAPPINESS AND TOASTS BY LISA CYPERS KAMEN

By Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness

When you think of toasts, most often happiness comes to mind. There are wedding toasts or toasts made by a hostess, such as when you are sharing a meal with family or friends. Have you really thought about the toast itself? Did you pay attention to what was being said as well as to how you felt at the time?

Here are some toasts for happiness to think about:

May every day be happier than the last.

May we look forward with happiness, and backward without regret.

May the frowns of misfortune never rob innocence of its joy.

Toasting origins: n the ale houses of Elizabethan England, a bit of spiced toast was usually put in the bottom of a cup of ale or wine to flavor it, and pos­sibly to soak up the dregs. In time, any male or female whose qualities or accom­plishments were frequently honored with a group drink came to be called “toasts”.

The word “toast” as used today-“a sentiment expressed just before drinking to someone”-did not begin to gain currency until the early 1700s.

Next time you are at a wedding, or even this New Year’s Eve as you reflect on the last year, pay close attention to the words of a toast and how you feel. Do you feel happy? What does the toast mean to you? Are you sharing in the toast with family or friends?
