Toasts

Well, tonight is New Year's Eve, Silvester or whatever you want to call it. I thought it would be a fun thing to find out as many different ways to toast as possible. I looked through the memories and didn't see any. Just cause your language is listed already, feel free to add another if you have a variation. The few that i know are:

English: Cheers
German: Prost
Irish: Slainte
Swedish: Skal
Hebrew: L'Chaim
Spanish: Salud
Japanese: Kanpai

EDIT: I am aware that accents and other characters are missing. I do not have the drive to find my character map combinations in order to properly write these words. Sorry if this offends anyone.
