'Time to call it a night' nghĩa là đã đến lúc kết thúc việc gì (làm lụng, tiệc tùng) và đi ngủ (it's time to quit one's activities for the night, Can refer to work or partying).

Ví dụ
It's time to call it a night after hours of painting and a lot of contemplation (tư duy sâu lắng, trầm ngâm, suy tính).

After failing to eat a dumpling (bánh bao, bánh hấp) in an incredibly specific way — much to the distress of the owners — and embarrassing myself sufficiently it was time to call it a night.

Senior sergeant Mike Sutton said it appeared a group of work colleagues staying in one of Margrain Vineyard's villas befriended a group of locals at a Martinborough pub. They all returned to the villa to continue drinking. The assault happened after the hosts decided it was time to call it a night.

Wheeling has had a curfew (lệnh giới nghiêm) for minors (trẻ vị thành niên) in place for decades. When the city’s population was bursting with young baby boomers, the local fire houses would soun their fire whistles at 10 p.m. to let juveniles (vị thành niên) know it was time to get off the streets. It also was a good way to remind children and their parents that it was time to call it a night.
