Why clink glasses in a toast?
You tell me! It's pretty naff in most settings nowadays. 8 people around a table ostentatiously clinking glasses before tucking into their oaked chardonnay. "Ee nan, that's reet grand that wine" Clinking the glasses ,one should only touch the ones to the left and right.To touch others is redundant and shows low class.This glass touching it done to show group unity,solidarity if you wish. --------------------- I heard this on a Movie - Tortilla Soup - It's somewhat paraphrased: You clink classes in order to experience the 5 senses: Clink glasses to 'hear' the toast - Touch the glass - See the color of the wine - smell the fragrance - taste the flavor. Seems reasonable to me ! ---------------------
The kinetic energy from the toaster's springs can sometimes toss the toast out. When making a toast, don't clink fancy wine glasses too forcefully, since they cannot handle the same kinetic energy that other glasses can. (In a Jewish wedding, the glass is doomed anyway.)

Originally, nobility feared that they might be poisoned. Therefore, they poured wine from glass to glass to ensure that no one present had placed poison in their glass of wine. Because it's the proper thing to do.
Raise your glass (half full) no higher than your eyes. Make whatever statement you wish that is appropriate. Then lower your glass to meet the others around you. It is appropriate to stand if you have more than 6 guests. The 'clinking' of the glasses is not mandatory. As soon as the toast is delivered (clink or not) it is customary for all guests to drink from the glass - just a sip is ok.
If you can, try to do it once with every person at the table.
The "clinking" of glasses originated in the medieval days when wine was often spiked with poison as the sediment concealed it quite well. If a host wanted to prove that the wine wasn't poisoned, he would pour part of the guest's wine into his glass and drink it first. If the guest trusted his host he would just clink glasses when the host offered his glass for a sample. Hence the clinking of glasses has… Read More

The etiquette of toasting is highly dependent on the social context in which the toast will be given. For instance, the approach and style of toasting would be quite different if made in a pub among casually dressed friends over beer than if made at a wedding reception by a tuxedo-clad best man to the newlyweds. In all cases, however, toasts should exhibit the following characteristics: - Toasts have three parts: the introduction, the oration… Read More

Would it be appropriate to ask a good friend who is a Jehovah's Witness to make a toast on a bridegroom at a wedding?
Well, it would be up to your friend whether he/she would do it (concious matter) but as you would probably be aware, the practice of toasting is to ward of evil spirits (when the glasses clink together) because they are frightened of the noise. So that is why Jehovah's witnesses tend not to do that. But of course it is up to your friend, and if they decide not to, then why not ask him/her… Read More

There can be various answers to this question but the common notion that this was done so as to spill a little wine into each other's glasses thereby ensuring that the drinks are not poisoned is not true. This custom is relatively new. Touching your glasses gently is done to incorporate the sense of hearing in the processes of making a toast. Earlier only four out of our 5 senses were gratified. Some believe that… Read More
I'm not sure what you mean by "dialectal". In France you could say "à la santé" or "à ta santé" or simply "à la tienne". When you clink the glasses together, you can say "tchin tchin".
I am guessing this means the word you say before taking a sip from your champagne glass after a toast. The word would be "skål", and you make your glass touch the glasses of the people near you to make a clinging sound, before drinking from it.

Bottoms up! and Here's looking at you.; an expression said as a toast when people are drinking together. (Alludes to the bottoms of the drinking glasses.)
It depends, how much toast do you have.... It also depends on how many toast your toaster can toast.
If you mean 'clink' as in Prison, it comes from a prison of that name in London in the early 1500's. It also refers to a Dutch word Klink meaning a door latch

The 1995 International Handbook on Alcohol and Culture says: "Toasting . . . is probably a secular vestige of ancient sacrificial libations in which a sacred liquid was offered to the gods . . . in exchange for a wish, a prayer summarized in the words 'long life!' or 'to your health!'" 20 True, many people may not consciously view toasting as a religious or superstitious gesture. Still, the custom of lifting wine glasses heavenward… Read More
