This is how to say “cheers!” around the world

Skål!

Where: Norway, Sweden, and Denmark

Pronounced: Skol [skɒːl]

If you’re looking for toasts with a unique history, head to the Scandinavian territories. “Skål“, which is used widely across Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, actually means “bowl” and harks back to the days when those gathered around the dinner table would drink from the same vessel. It is worth noting, however, that the Finnish prefer to say “kippis“, which comes from the German expression “die Gläser kippen“, or “knock back the glasses.”

In Denmark, you can also use the phrase “Bunden i vejret eller rester i håret“, which translates to “bottoms up, or the rest in your hair.”

    Actually, the Portuguese way of saying is not “Salood”, like the Spanish – we say “Saúde”, pronounced more like [sa.ud] – same meaning (Health), but different!!
