15 Legitimate Signs That You Grew Up In Maryland
If you grew up in the Old Line State, then you will likely relate to the below list. From loving Old Bay to Ocean City summer trips, there are just some things that are an essential part of growing up in Maryland.
1. You put Old Bay on everything.
Eggs, popcorn, seafood, corn...
2. You've learned that weather can change in an instant.
Never assume spring is here to stay. Always keep a sweatshirt (and shovel) handy.
3. You may have a bit of an accent.
Baltimoreans and Eastern Shore residents are known to have an accent. Do you have one?
4. You learned how to pick crabs from a young age.
At this point, you could school anybody in the art of crab picking.
5. You have an immense amount of state pride.
You may even own Maryland flag themed apparel.
6. And you get offended when people talk bad about Maryland.
No state is perfect, but Maryland certainly has positive attributes.
7. You're very particular about crab cakes.
Serve a Marylander a bad crab cake... I dare you.
8. Your childhood summer wasn't complete without a trip to Ocean City.
A trip to the ocean just before the start of the school year is the norm for many Maryland families.
9. And Thanksgiving isn't the same without a side of sauerkraut.
This tradition is practiced by many locals and is here to stay.
10. You proudly know all of the words to the National Anthem.
And you may even scream "O!" when appropriate.
11. You know the ins and outs of Civil War history.
Civil War history is huge in the state. You likely also took field trips to local battlefields.
12. This was always your favorite mascot, even if you had no idea who exactly he was.
Mr. Boh is quite the charmer.
13. You've taken fields trips to the C & O Canal.
Spanning 184.5 miles in length, a trip to the canal is easy and full of history.
14. You thought this was Disney World.
The Mormon Temple can be seen from miles away, tricking Maryland tots into thinking Mickey Mouse lives here.
15. You know it's true what they say; there's no place like home.
Whether you still live in Maryland or occasionally visit, you know there's no other place like it.
