Dec 30, 2023 (0) comment , , ,

When the clock strikes twelve, the last thing you want is to be caught without something to drink. And what better way to commemorate the moment the ball drops and set the tone for the year ahead than with a special toast. So in order to help you not be the one hanging this New Year’s Eve when you’re called upon to make the big speech, we’ve compiled our favorite toasts and well-wishes, many from some very thoughtful and distinguished people (so you know it will be good!) like Benjamin Franklin, C.S. Lewis, and Willie Nelson.
