Let’s Drink to Georgia

Let’s Drink to Georgia questions the toasting traditions in Georgia. By changing the setting of toasting, it falls out of place and becomes absurd. Toasting accompanies almost every Georgian traditional meal, and sometimes the heroism and praising of Georgia ends right there, at that table, with those very words. How important is it to glorify the mythological past of one’s homeland? Are there maybe some other ways through which to demonstrate patriotism?
