What is the meaning of [A wonder lasts but nine days]

A nine day’s wonder is an event that attracts much attention, but is soon
forgotten. Dr Brewer divides the nine days into ‘three days’ amazement, three
days’ discussion of details, and three days’ subsidence ‘ – that is, sinking
down. An Albanian proverb of the same meaning goes: A wonder lasts but three
days.
