一分钟英语:Rain On Someone’s Parade

English in a Minute – Rain On Someone's Parade:泼冷水

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

A parade is a traveling celebration along public streets.

It's a moving party!

Nothing can ruin a parade except, well, rain.

Jonathan, this year I'm entering Washington D.C.'s original Song-a-Thon contest.

Anna, I hate to tell you this, but... Anna!

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but that contest was last week. No!

The expression "to rain on someone's parade" means to ruin someone's good time.

If someone rains on your parade, they take away your happiness. All of it.

And that's English in a Minute!
