America is called the melting pot because, as a nation, we are made up hundreds of nationalities, backgrounds and customs. But, fortunately, we somehow manage to come together in our little corners of the world and create a culture that is all our own. After 400 years, Virginia has seen changes and evolutions in her culture – but there are definitely a few little quirks and oddities that remain. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty proud of the things that make me a Virginian…even if they are a little weird.

Weird is definitely a relative term. Personally, I think that these are just a few of the things that make us special, but hey, I’m a Virginian. What are some things we may have left off of our list? Let us know what you think sets Virginia apart in the comments below!
