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.
