Definition of nine days' or seven-day or one-day wonder in English:
Something that attracts great interest for a short while but is then forgotten.
- Was it just a nine days' wonder that faded as fast as it arrived?
- Animal Rights groups here are voluntary and struggle to campaign whilst faced with an apathetic response once the initial seven-day wonder period of a highlighted abuse passes.
- I don't normally keep a diary, so I will retrospectively reconstruct the main events and impressions of a seven-day wonder that had no precedent.
