A glass, or three was enjoyed at last nights family dinner, cheers, then bottoms up rang out to the absolute delight of my dgds, who thought it was the funniest thing ever, I wonder, where does that originate from, also what is your favourite "cheers"? tchgrin

'Bottoms up' literally means to tilt the glass up till the contents are all gone and the bottom of the drinking vessel is up, as in facing the ceiling.
We just say cheers should the occasion ever arise, usually non-alcoholic though so not sure it counts 😀

Mostly its the Greek version, "Yamas".
