a) we got an extra day of work for it
b) it was happy news so that made a nice change for papers to focus on a happy occasion
c) I hope they'll be happy together
For me though the event of the month was the addition of sun in April - have you see how pretty the Thames is by Richmond in sunshine? No? Have a look...
