Superstitious Saturday Tchin Tchin

Superstitious Saturday Tchin Tchin

The phrase tchin tchin (chin chin) is a way to wish someone good luck. It originated in China and means please please - an invitation to have a drink – like saying cheers. The phrase was then passed on to soldiers in France which led to its current popularity.

I have occasionally heard tchin tchin used backstage as a different way to wish performers good luck, but it is most commonly used as a toast.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstitious Secret #200:
“Saying tchin tchin is a way to wish someone good luck.”
