Learning Croatian: Phrase of the Week – Baptizing Goats

Croatia211-1-1

You know some basic Croatian, enough to get you by, but there is nothing that will impress more than knowing a local phrase or slang that you can slip into a conversation…

Our ‘Word / Phrase of the Week will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.

Today’s phrase:

Besposlen pop i jariće krsti

Translation: An idle priest will start baptizing goats. (If someone is without real and important tasks, he will undertake unimportant or senseless activities.) The phrase is the English equivalent of: The Devil finds work for idle hands.
