One of the oldest and most known Croatian rules of drinking in a close company, Križevački štatuti, cannot be designated by one genre only. They are a combination of many genres of oral literature, principally oral songs, rhetoric, rhetorical forms, and oral drama. Toasts are a fundamental and dominant rhetorical form in Križevački štatuti. They are accompanied by eulogies used as a response to the toasts. In order for Križevački štatuti to function well in their performance, a good orator, who with a carefully chosen vocabulary and solemn tone says toasts and lines of oral folk literature, is of great importance.
