WHY CLINGING GLASSES BEFORE DRINKING?

Clinging Glasses

Clinging Glasses

When celebrating people cling glasses. Have you ever wondered why?

The original reason has been lost in history but there are 2 main theories.

Theory One:

When drinking all the senses are activated beside hearing. Hence, clinging allows people to taste and hear, not so much the beverages but at least the glasses.

 

Theory Two:

A long time ago a common manner of assassination was poisoning people. Hence, people prevented from this by clinging glasses against each other to spill across glasses and reduce the risks of poisoning intents.

 

Theory Three:

Originally people only used one glass and shared it among the guests. When people introduced more glasses they used the physical contacts between the glasses instead of the physical gesture of passing the one glass around.
