Okay, so I had a random thought last night, and this question may have no answer at all, but:

Why, when someone's toasting you do they say, "Here, here!", but when they're comforting you, they say, "There, there."?

Just an interesting little thought...

Excellent question- you stumped my father and he knows all (I swear). I shall ponder.
