Life in Vermont means you have some pretty unique days to celebrate. Town Meeting Day is the day for town/village elections and public meetings on referendums and such. I had never heard of this until moving up here, and frankly it’s a pretty cool thing. Then there’s Bennington Battle Day, a state holiday celebrating a particular battle in the Revolutionary war.
But there are also days that deserve celebration on a more personal level—like Windows Up! Day.
Yep, that’s what I said. This year, that celebration happens on March 10, and it should be as glorious as always. All the windows will be open, with curtains drawn back. Dust will fly and fresh air will rush the house. The added bonus this year? It’s a two-day celebration, before winter resumes its regular duties.
