Idiom of the day – To receive a frosty reception 

It is normal at this time of year to go outside and find that the ground is hard and frosty. But it is possible to get a frosty reception at any time of the year. It happens when you arrive somewhere, e.g. a party, and the host is not pleased to see you – perhaps because of something unkind you have previously said or done. Maybe after a few drinks and a nice slice of birthday cake the atmosphere between you will begin to thaw and you can kiss and make up. 😉😘
