Earth Shattering

And Today's Idiom is Earth Shattering. It refers to news that is life changing for virtually everyone on earth. It is as if the old earth was completely destroyed, and we are now living on a new planet earth.
These would include events like the Arab Spring, the French Revolution, the Berlin Wall coming down, things that change the way that we see everyday life. On a personal scale, it might be like when we become parents or when a loved one dies.

  1. Hello, Cherie!
    I love your site. Regarding this idiom, I would like to add that it is an adjective and it is usually written with a hyphen. In context, we could say: an earth-shattering discovery.
    Best,
    Sylvia :)
