Toasting with guests!
Lasst uns anstoßen auf... Englisch!

Favourite toasts for special occasions

When you find it difficult to think of an appropriate toast yourself and you want to create a merry atmosphere, here are some funny examples that you may use on special occasions:


  • To Jack. We don't know what to do without him but we'll soon find out.
  • May you have even more fun in retirement than we have here at work.
  • Remember John! A bad day at fishing is still better than a good day at work.
  • The best time to start thinking about your retirement is before the boss does.
  • It is time I stepped aside for the less experienced and less able.

Farewell party

  • May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.
  • May misfortune follow you the rest of your life but never catch up.
  • May your neighbours respect you, trouble neglect you, angels protect you and heaven accept you.
  • To all the days hereinafter. May they be filled with fond memories, happiness and laughter.

Birthday party

  • You're not as young as you used to be. But ... you're not as old as you're going to be. So watch it!
  • Here's to your health and your family's health. May you live long and prosper.
  • May you live all the days of your life!
  • May you live to be a hundred years, with one extra year to repent.
  • You know you're getting older when the candles cost more than the cake.


  • Marriage is the most important voyage of discovery a person can embark upon.
  • Each of us sees a part of the world; together we see all of it.
  • May you grow old together on one pillow.
  • May you be friends with each other as only lovers can; and may you love each other as only best friends can.
