Dear Greeks (and other people who want to be Greeks ((C) "My Big Fat Greek Wedding")),

How do you say "Cheers!" in Greek? Like, when you raise a glass with a drink?

In the movie, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," they say something that sounds to me like "Eeyaso," but I don't recall ever seeing this word written.

Thank you (and cheers! Smiley )

Γεια Σου!

In Americanized form, Ya sou! (singular) and Ya sas! (Plural)

If offered as a toast, like in the movie, then it becomes Στην Υγεια σου! (aka to your health)

Actually, the first line is an abbreviated form of the above line.   Smiley

Can anyone tell me what is the phrase they say in Greek when someone pours the last part of a bottle of wine, they say something that means that he will get married soon and that he will succeed in his matrimonial life.

I thought you had to go around the table three times to get married? Isn't that what happened to DJ?
