Is there a similar saying in English?
Hi there, Is there any saying in English to the Spanish one: �una vez al a�o no hace da�o.�? It means that doing something just once a year, such as skipping your diet, it won�t hurt you. I have found on one website this translation �just the once will not hur, but I wonder if it is used or sounds natural. Thanks in advance.

Another common way of phrasing it is "it won�t hurt just this once".
