If You’re From Virginia, Then You’ll Know These 12 Traditions

After 400 years, Virginia has one of the richest histories of any state in the nation. Along with that history comes, of course, many special traditions and cultural idiosyncrasies that make us…well, “Virginians.” Of course, over time as cultures have shifted and changed, America in general has become more homogenous. And as people have become more mobile, many other states and cultures have brought their own identities and cultures to Virginia. But there are still some special things, events, seasons and celebrations that make me feel especially happy to call Virginia my home state.

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
