13 Strange Habits Every Mainer Will Defend To The Death

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Mainers are a special breed. We scoff at what southerners consider cold weather, we drink a medicinal tasting local soda (well, not ALL of us) and we pack the kids for school the night of a blizzard knowing that the school bus will pull up at its regular time the next day. Yes, folks – there are some habits seen in Mainers that might come across as strange, but we’ll defend ourselves no matter what. It takes a special type to be a Mainer and, of that, we are pretty darn proud!

Speaking of strange habits, did you know that we love a very special type of grilled cheese? Click here to find out more about this lobster infused deliciousness!
