Valentine's prankster papers Vt. capital again

Monday, February 14, 2011

Vermont's state capital is aflutter in hearts again.

In keeping with a mysterious Valentine's Day tradition, an unknown person or people plaster sheets of paper with red hearts on them all over downtown offices, shops and buildings.

The so-called Valentine's Bandit started the tradition in Montpelier in 2002. Each year, residents wake up to find the red hearts affixed to buildings, shop windows and other downtown fixtures.

The "phantom" has his - or her - own Facebook page, dubbed the Montpelier Valentine Phantom Phan Page.

Appreciative fans took to Facebook on Monday. One thanked the Phantom for making her drive to work wonderful.
