Souvenir Edition

Go To

Or another way to sell papers. On a date of certain (good) historical significance, newspapers will stick in a supplement and declare themselves a "souvenir edition", although it's really just a normal paper with coverage of the event taking up a good ten or so pages.

  • New year's day, year 2000.
