People that were raised in the South tend to be awfully proud of it. As a matter of fact, most Southerners would tell you that they would rather live in the South than any other place in the world. We're not just talking about where you're born, we're talking about a way of life here. If you think Southern hospitality is the best kind there is and love some good old fashioned home cooking, you probably have a pretty good shot at being a true Southerner, but there is a bit more to it than that. Your habits and your manners say more about your region than anything! If you say "Y'all" and you aren't trying to be hip, if you have eaten at Chick-fil-a more than a dozen times in a week, and if you think your mom is the coolest thing in the world, you just might be a true Southerner.
What about you? Maybe you were born in the South and never left it, maybe you're someone who has moved to another part of the country, or maybe you live somewhere else in the world but have always felt like a Southerner at heart! Take this quiz to find out if you're a true southerner. Don't be shy. As any southerner would tell you, if you can't run with the big dogs, stay under the porch.
