Learn an English idiom every Friday with Groupetude!

This idiom is used in theatres; before an actor goes on stage, rather than saying « good luck », which incidentally is supposed to bring bad luck, you say, « break a leg! »

I have always wondered why we say break a leg… it is a bit strange after all. Its origins, however, are uncertain, so we’ll just have to remember not to say « good luck » to anyone about to perform!
