    If you consider it a sport to sit in a tree stand all day long with a bow or
    a gun just to put food in your freezer, you might live in Pennsylvania
    If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights each year
    because Bradford is the coldest spot in the nation, you might live in
    Pennsylvania .
    If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March, you might
    live in Pennsylvania .

    If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the year,
    you might live in Pennsylvania .

    If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there, you
    might live in Pennsylvania cause you're all so damn friendly.

    If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his
    forehead, cause he wears a hardhat you might live in Pennsylvania
    If you have worn shorts, sunglasses and a parka at the same time, you might
    live in Pennsylvania .

    If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, or if you are in
    church and your priest or minister asks you to pray for the STEELERS, and
    wants to get you all home for 1 p.m. kickoff, you might live in Pennsylvania
    .
    If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a

    You might be from Pennsylvania if you are wondering why the vehicle, that you wish you could pass, can't break into a trot instead of a walk.

    "You measure distance in hours."

    Doesn't everyone? I didn't know that is a PA trait.

    You might be from Pennsylvania if you know that the Blue Route is used for infiltration by people with fancy cars and bad attitudes that come from a foreign land...

    You are definitely a Pennsylvanian if you refer to your state by its postal abbreviation "PA". Does anybody else do that? Oh, and if you eat SCRAPPLE.

    You know that Pennsylvania Dutch has nothing to do with Belgium or the Netherlands.


    You know that the state drink is milk, not beer.


    You know that Cameron and Potter counties have more deer than people.


    You know the significance of February 2nd.

    For way too many years, I was a GM service manager in Pennsylvania's Lancaster County, the Pennsylvania Dutch capitol of the world. One day, I received a Customer Request for Assistance (GM-speak for 'complaint') from Chevrolet. The customer was listed as living in Marstown but I not only never heard of a Marstown, I couldn't find one on an atlas. When I called the customer, I immediately knew what happened - the young lady in Detroit spelled Myerstown the same way the customer pronounced it!

    You might be from Penna if you live in an area that has 10 or more trap clubs in your County and retail stores that sell the lowest priced reloading components in the US.

    I lived in St. Mary's, PA (south of Bradford) for a short time and I fondly recall that the town had it's own brewery...Straub Beer.

    Now I know why I quit drinking!!!!

    Curt, Straub beer was made from all natural ingredients and with no preservatives. It was not pasturized. Mike

    Y'all are just too funny. I'm a Pennsylvania transplant, and have lived here going on a few years now. All of the things above are things that really stand out to a newcomer, and start to grow on you as you stay. I have found more fun things to remember about PA than any other state that I've ever lived in.

    And Marylanders also rely on Punxsutawney Phil, BTW...

    Grew up there....other things you might recognize...


    Church youth group was on Monday night, because marching band practice was on Wednesday, and Tuesday and Thursday were trap league nights (different leagues). Fridays of course, were the high school football games.

    And I've been to more than a few firehall wedding receptions!
