"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

New Meaning - To roast

TeachTeach Your TeacherHomePosts: 10,304 mod
Traditionally if you roast something you cook it (especially meat) by prolonged exposure to heat in an oven or over a fire.

Informally it can also mean to criticize or reprimand severely.

Now, seemingly, it's a trend on the internet. Roasting is when people put their photo online and ask to be insulted.

    The things people do for fun @Lynne! But I suppose if folk do have to keep taking selfies all the time, then a good roasting is the least they should expect.
