  • Some people in Ireland say there’s “a hole in the house” if a gossip or tell-tale is eavesdropping on a conversation.

  • In Mexico, when we want to tell someone smthg secret and there’s someone else
    around, we say: “Walls can listen” .

  • In Serbia, we say:”Even walls have ears!”
    When someone is trying to hide his feelings or intentions, or you can see he’s lying we say:”I am reading you like an open book”.
    There’s also a saying about “keeping your dirty laundry inside your house”, meaning you shouldn’t reveal family problems to others.

    “A skeleton in the closet” is an embarrassing secret about somebody’s past. American English,I think.
