Here Are 12 Crazy Traditions You’ll Totally Get If You’re From Kentucky

Every state has its own traditions, and Kentucky has some time-honored and/or crazy traditions of our own. Most of these are common-place to you and I, but to out of state folks, we might as well be dancing naked in the woods. Not all our practices cause visitors to stare off blankly. Some people even bask in our ways during certain times of the year.

In my thoughts, all these things are common, but it probably varies according to the area of the state one lives in or frequents. Eastern, western, northern, southern and central Kentucky each have a unique way of living, but we share a common good will and a “take it easy” nature. These are just a few of the traditions I noticed growing up. What traditions do you celebrate in Kentucky?

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
