  • Time for bed, time for a drink, time to stop working...It really depends on the context. – AffableAmbler Jul 25 '17 at 20:21

    @BwarO.Rasul , sounds like another question to be posted. – Chim Chimz Jul 25 '17 at 20:48

Figure of speech... means an interruption to the flow of the conversation.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

  • No offense but this is not exactly correct. It's a polite way to say, "the party's over", "let's all get ready to go home", "it's about time for bed", etc... A polite way to break up the activity and end it. – Kace36 Jul 26 '17 at 6:19

That is a common idiom which is used as a way to politely end the activity of the evening. It's another way of saying other colloquial references (i.e.): "party's over folks", "it's getting late, time for bed", "why don't we all gather our things and wrap up", and so on.

It can be used for a party or small "get together" or for a work event; really any kind of social gathering is where you might hear this figure of speech.

Again, the easiest way to explain it's meaning: "it's getting late and we should wrap up (end activities) and go home".
