This week we are going to look at some common English idioms.
Once in a blue moon
Once in a blue moon means rarely, not often. * When we can see a full moon twice in one month it is called a blue moon. It happens very rarely. That is the reason we have this English expression.
A: “Do you go to the movie theater very often?”
B: “I usually rent DVDs and watch movies from home. I only go to the theater once in a blue moon.”
|“At home there is no line up for the bathroom!”|
“I don’t often drink, but I’ll have a beer once in a blue moon.”
|“It’s cheaper to eat at home, but I like to eat at a nice restaurant|
once in a blue moon.”
