The Seven Days office is now officially closed for our annual holiday break. Our bosses give us all a free week or so off at the end of the year to compensate for the other holidays we have to work (Memorial Day, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, etc.). I think it's a great deal.
We put next week's paper to bed early, so you'll still get a new paper next Wednesday (and a Bite Club e-newsletter on Tuesday, and a NOW e-newsletter on Wednesday), but we won't be back to work until Monday, January 3.
In the meantime, we asked our writers to reflect on 2010. They submitted their blog posts in advance (most of them did, anyway...). I've scheduled them to publish during our break, so you'll have new content to read here on the blog.
Finally, in honor of Christmas Eva — er, Christmas Eve — check out this week's episode of "Stuck in Vermont," whch features Santa's recent visit to Mayfair Park in South Burlington. If your family celebrates Christmas, have a merry one.
