Inspired by the original Holi Festival in India, Holi One Festivals have travelled around the world to South Africa, Germany, the US and Singapore. Thousands of people, dressed in white, come together to share in music, dance and celebrate a new season.

受印度侯丽节Holi Festival 的启发,现在世界上很多国家每年都会庆祝 Holi One Festival。在南非、德国、美国和新加坡,每年一度的 Holi One Festival 都会吸引成千上万身着白色衣衫的民众聚集到一起分享音乐、载歌载舞、共同庆祝新一季的到来。


短语 have a big mouth 用来形容一个说话声大、爱说闲话而且无法保守秘密的人。


Jimmy has a big mouth. Yesterday I told him that I am leaving the company and today everybody knows about it.

I could never be a spy. I have a big mouth!


短语 all mouth 常会用在 'be all mouth and no trousers' 这个表达中,意思是只说不做。

I bet you haven't asked your boss about that pay rise you talk so much about; you are all mouth and no trousers!
