11 Crazy Traditions You’ll Only Get If You’re From North Carolina

In the south, traditions are about as common as biscuits. We love our traditions; they shape us and they shape our state. The majority of us probably grew up with these traditions, learned them along the way, or even made a few ourselves. Here are 11 that outsiders might see as ‘strange’ but we see as completely normal.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

I know there are SO many traditions throughout North Carolina, and a lot of those depend on your location in the state and where you grew up. Are there any you’d like to add to the list?
