Every Monday, words to start the week.
This week, from Hotel Club: illustrated idioms from around the globe (plus, explanations as to what they mean). "The midday demon" may be my favorite; however, I also love that to the Finnish, having a frog emerge from someone's mouth means that he or she has said something inappropriate, and that in Spanish, the act of rejecting a potential partner is referred to as "giving pumpkins" (the squash was once considered a libido killer). Find the full list of ten, here.
Three more links, just because:
-Adventurers of the year.
-Five New York City families share their favorite holiday meals (the Jewish-Japanese Christmas hits especially close to home).
