I wasn’t sure what to expect of my first Ham Days. It was one of the first things I heard about when I was hired in June (we even talked about it in my interview). I remember seeing the signs advertising it the first day I drove into Lebanon. I thought to myself, I wonder what Ham Days is?
I soon found out that it was a festival (obviously), but I had no idea how much it was ingrained into the very fabric of this county’s culture. To an outsider, I thought, great, a festival about pigs. But I soon realized that it is so much more than that.
