Meaning of the Cheers Emoji

Every time we raise our glasses to whatever we are toasting, we always clink glasses. Whether we drink wine or champagne, or maybe just beer, we always clink glasses, and this gesture is commonly known as “Cheers”. Have you ever wondered why we do this? Let’s first familiarize ourselves with the most popular versions of the origin of this tradition.

One of the versions says that this habit appeared in the times of paganism, when people worshiped different gods and believed in different spirits. They brought gifts in the form of food and drinks to the good ones, and the evil ones were scared away by various sounds, including ringing. Initially, they drove them away by ringing bells, but if there was no bell nearby, they just choked, hoping that this sound would be effective.

Another plausible version of the origin of the custom is associated with the fear of being poisoned. In the Middle Ages, the tradition of clinking glasses was a kind of check – and whether the drink in the glass is not poisoned. Everyone clinked cups – so that the drinks splashed from one cup to another. So there was no intruder at the table who planned to poison one of the gathered.

In some sources you can find information that the tradition of tapping came from the knights. During a feast, knights would clink their glasses several times as a sign of respect, which meant unity and brotherhood.

Today, we raise our glasses and say “Cheers” when we celebrate something or honor someone, when we congratulate someone on a significant event, or when we just tune in to have fun together.
