When people think of Vermont at the holidays , images of “ White Christmas ” likely flood the mind .
And certainly , no place is more beautiful at the holidays than Vermont .
But Vermont is not just “ pretty .” Vermont is special .
Vermont is a rare combination of nature , history , the arts , activism , food , industry , memories , and innovation . With each issue of this publication , we try to showcase how all of these seemingly different elements all intersect naturally in the Green Mountain State .
In this Vermont Magazine , we feature home-grown Vermont businesses Addison West ( page 16 ), A Single Pebble ( page 12 ), The Four Chimneys Inn ( page 66 ) and Turtle Fur ( page 4 )— and shine a spotlight on the amazing work being done by The Vermont Women ’ s Fund ( page 44 ).
We not only provide some delicious holiday recipes courtesy of Cabot Cheese ( page 62 ), but also share the scoop on Wildgood vegan ice cream ( page 63 ) and TÖST , a non-alcoholic sparkling refresher ( page 64 ).
Singer / Songwriter Neko Case tells her story and personal ® connection to nature ( page 46 ), and TONY AWARD Winner Christian Hoff talks about his career , his life in Vermont , and his new radio show on WEQX 102.7 , Jazz ‘ n TÖST ( Page 24 ).
And speaking of “ White Christmas ”, we do a deep dive with several Hollywood historians and ask the question , “ Why do people instantly think of Vermont when they hear the words , ‘ White Christmas ’?”
I hope you enjoy this issue of Vermont Magazine — and as we approach 2022 , we wish you a healthy , happy , and fulfilling new year !
