今日小常识

The photo shows men in the Northern Indian village of Barsana celebrating the Hindu festival of Lath mar Holi. The tradition involves men singing provocative songs to gain the attention of women, who then beat them with bamboo sticks called "lathis". Holi, also known as the Festival of Colours, marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated all over India.

照片上是印度北部邦的巴萨纳村镇的男人正在庆祝印度教节日“胡里节”(又名“洒红节”)。这一节日在当地的传统是由男子向女子歌唱挑拨言情的歌曲,作为回应,女子会用名叫“拉西斯”的竹棒追打他们。“胡里节”也有“泼洒颜色节”的别号,是庆祝春季开始的印度举国节日。

Our new green rug should add a splash of colour to our bedroom.

请注意

短语 with flying colours 不是“飞起来的颜色”,而是表示某人以“优异成绩”取得成功。
