12 love idioms and a love song

April 30, 2012

“Late evening, on the first of May -
The twilit May – the time of love.
Meltingly called the turtle-dove,
Where rich and sweet pinewoods lay.”

Have you recognized the English translation of May (Máj) by Karel Hynek Mácha?
Although 1 May or May Day is now known as International Worker’s Day, in many cultures is it also a spring festival. And spring means… love!

Have you ever had a blind date?
Have you ever fallen for someone head over heels?
Have you already tied the knot/got hitched?
Who did you have a crush on at school?
