Cheers! 2020 Girls - CKJY Exports Wine & Spirits Blog by Claire Logsdon

What better reason to raise a glass than celebrating a new year with friends and family? Celebrating a great event or the events to come is an age old tradition, dating back thousands of years when humans first began drinking alcohol. Typically, we say a few meaningful celebratory words at an event or occasion, don’t we?

But how is best to graciously ring in a new year full of promise?

Impress your friends and family wishing them a happy new year and cheers in 8 different languages!
