shout (something) from the housetop(s)(redirected from shouted something from the housetops)
shout (something) from the housetop(s)
To share some news or information publicly and with as many people as possible. I was ready to shout that we'd be having a baby from the housetops, but my wife wanted to wait for a while before we made the news public. I know you want to shout it from the housetop that you came in first in your class, but you should have a bit of modesty about it.
