Holiday Toasts- Wine and Friendship

Yesterday my wife and I were getting a gift package ready for some friends, and one of the presents was a wine journal.  We wanted to write a nice quote about wine and friendship, and while Google provided ample results to our search, none sufficed, so I made up several of my own: 

The vine begets the grape
The grape begets the wine
Our friends be gettin’ glasses
And I be fillin’ mine

#

With our friends we raise our glasses,
And watch another New Year’s pass us
Uncork the wine, my lads and lasses
And we'll get drunk off all our asses

#

Friends and wine go hand-in-hand
Or glass-in-hand, as it may be
I really can’t tell right now
For I’m so drunk I see in threes

#

We count our blessings
For our friends
And toast until
The bottle ends

#

Fine wine is to be cherished
Like a friend’s familiar face
So let us gaze upon each other
And have wine brought by the case

#


Let’s raise our glasses, raise them high
Another year has passed us by
And once the bottoms reach the sky
Fill them again so they won’t dry

#


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

They're all great; but this one is perfect:

The vine begets the grape
The grape begets the wine
Our friends be gettin’ glasses
And I be fillin’ mine


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family Rick.

Merry, merry Christmas to you! I'll be raising a glass in the general direction of Ohio.

Cheers!
