(someone or something), an expression used as a toast to someone or something to wish someone or something well. Here's to Jim and Mary! May they be very happy! Here's to your new job!
One salutes someone or something. For example, Here's to Bill on his retirement, or Here's to the new project. This phrase, nearly always used as a toast to someone or something, is a shortening of here's a health to and has been so used since the late 1500s. Shakespeare had it in Romeo and Juliet (5:3): "Here's to my Love."
