It’s the Holiday Season in Vermont!

When I think of the holiday season in Vermont, I think of snow, skiing, and spreading some holiday cheer. While I can’t see much (any!) snow outside my window right now, I can definitely find some in the archive. Here are just a few holiday photos that we have in our collection. Enjoy!

Where do all those gorgeous Christmas trees come from? From tree farms across Vermont! These trees are being harvested from a tree farm in Morristown, VT.

Here’s a great photo from the Vermont State Archives of the State Building at Christmas. Look at that beautiful tree!

Speaking of trees, here’s a family with two young children picking out a Christmas tree.

Have a wonderful holiday!
