Prince Philip is the Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth’s husband and he is quoted as saying that his good health in old age is due to the number of banquets and formal events that he has attended at which people have toasted his health. Now, in 2007 he’s 86.

 

People sometimes criticize the healthcare sector, saying it’s really not about health but about sickness. But if you consider the relationship between our words ‘health’ and the word ‘heal’, then maybe healthcare is a good name since most often the objective is to heal the sick. Both these words, heal and health, come to us from old English, from a root hails, which meant "whole". So it’s from a Germanic source.

 

The American Heritage Dictionary points back to Indo-European before that to a root 'kailo', meaning whole or uninjured. So when you’re healthy, you aren’t missing any parts or wounded.

 

The reason that people have been hoisting glasses to Prince Philip's health for so many years appears to run back to the Greeks. When they toasted to someone they actually handed him the vessel of drink from saying "here is to you". According to Browse Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, the fact that we hold our glasses aloft is supposed to be a remnant of this old custom. A historian of the period very close after the Norman Conquest who's remembered as William of Malmesbury, tells us that drinking to one’s health originated after the king back in the year 978 was murdered as he took a big gulf from the drink he was offered.

 

I suppose a customer's exclaiming "to your health" would have come up to reassure people that you won't gonna stab them while they've get their faces covered by a big mug of suds.

 

That historian William of Malmesbury was a product of the arrival of William the Conqueror. William of Malmesbury is thought to have had an English mother and a French father and his estimated birth date means that his parents must have fallen in love within a generation or so of that fateful year of conquest 1066. Unlike William the Conqueror though, William of Malmsebury had a pretty uneventful life, dedicating himself to the documenting of history—and in fact being so dedicated about it that his account stops pretty abruptly and it’s suspected that he may have finally just keeled over with his pen still in his hand.

 

Another historian who mentions drinking to health lived pretty much simultaneously and his name was Geoffery of Monmouth. According to him the "to your health" toast goes back to the moment the Anglo Saxon set foot in England to begin their takeover of the island. One of the leaders of the Anglo Saxon is a guy named Hengist brought his daughter along, Rowena, and she says to the British King Vertigern "to your health" as she hands a golden cup of wine. Now this must made him feel very healthy because he then is said to proceed to marry her.

 

If this tale is true, then toasting to health is pushed back 500 years or so. But that’s a big if since the second historian Geoffery of Monmouth isn’t exactly known for his accuracy in the other areas.

 

Not only does he tell us that the British Isles were populated by the Greeks, but he also is one of the early sources of the legend of King Arthur of the round table.

If this tale is true, then toasting to health is push back (to,应该是口误漏词) 5000 years or so. But that’s a big if since the second historian Jeffry Monmerf isn’t exactly known for his accuracy in the other areas.

 

Not only does he tell us that the British Isles were populated by the Greeks, but he also is one of the early sources of the legend of King Arthur of the round table.

Prince Philip is the Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth’s husband and he is quoted as saying that his good health in old age is due to the number of banquets and formal events that he has attended at which people have toasted his health. Now, in 2007 he’s 86.


People sometimes criticize the healthcare sector, saying it’s really not about health but about sickness. But if you consider the relationship between our words ‘health’ and the word ‘heal’, then maybe healthcare is a good name since most often the objective is to heal the sick. Both these words, heal and health, come to us from old English, from a root hails, which meant "whole". So it’s from a Germanic source.


The American Heritage Dictionary points back to Indo-European before that to a root 'kailo', meaning whole or uninjured. So when you’re healthy, you aren’t missing any parts or wounded.

The reason that people have been hoisting glasses to Prince Philip's health for so many years appears to run back to the Greeks. When they toasted to someone they actually handed him the vessel of drink from saying "here is to you". According to Browse Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, the fact that we hold our glasses aloft is supposed to be a remnant of this old custom. A historian of the period very close/ after the Norman Conquest who's remembered as William of Malmesbury, tells us that drinking to one’s health originated after the king back in the year 978 was murdered as he took a big gulf from the drink he was offered.


I suppose a customer's exclaiming "to your health" would have come up to reassure people that you won't gonna stab them while they've get their faces covered by a big mug of suds.


That historian William of Malmesbury was a product of the arrival of William the Conqueror. William of Malmesbury is thought to have had an English mother and a French father and his estimated birth date means that his parents must have fallen in love within a generation or so of that fateful year of conquest 1066. Unlike William the Conqueror though, William of Malmsebury had a pretty uneventful life, dedicating himself to the documenting of history—and in fact being so dedicated about it that his account stops pretty abruptly and it’s suspected that he may have finally just keeled over with his pen still in his hand.


Another historian who mentions drinking to health lived pretty much simultaneously and his name was Geoffery of Monmouth. According to him the "to your health" toast goes back to the moment the Anglo Saxon set foot in England to begin their takeover of the island. One of the leaders of the Anglo Saxon is a guy named Hengist brought his daughter along, Rowena, and she says to the British King Vertigern "to your health" as she hands a golden cup of wine. Now this must made him feel very healthy because he then is said to proceed to marry her.


If this tale is true, then toasting to health is pushed back 500 years or so. But that’s a big if since the second historian Geoffery of Monmouth isn’t exactly known for his accuracy in the other areas.

Not only does he tell us that the British Isles were populated by the Greeks, but he also is one of the early sources of the legend of King Arthur of the round table.
