I once heard a saying that gives the definitions of Yankee, and due to it's accuracy and hilarity, it has stuck with me to this very day.



"To the world, a Yankee is an American.

To an American, a Yankee is someone from the North.

To a Northerner, a Yankee is someone from New England.

To a New Englander, a Yankee is someone from Vermont.

To a Vermonter, a Yankee is someone who eats apple pie for breakfast."



Well, I have to say, if you take my breakfast habits and score from The Yankee or Dixie Quiz, I am pretty strongly Yank. 33%, Definitive Yankee. Which makes sense since I grew up 2 hours from Vermont.



Enjoy the quiz, and share your score with me!

I took the quiz and here's where I landed: 43% (Yankee) Barely into the Yankee category. That is weird, because I'm an Upstate New Yorker for my whole life and thought I'd be more Yankee than that! I guess you never know...thanks for another adorable bribe pic of the kids too.
Also, I just ordered a book off of your recommended reading list: Rural Renaissance. I can't wait to get started reading it! Have a great day-Carol

You are gonna love Rural Renaissance. It is very inspiring...after that you should read See You in a Hundred Years. Very cool true story.
Thanks for commenting, Carol. I'm glad we're blog friends.

Jocelyn - my score was a 38% (a definite Yankee)! I am so proud that I had to tell you.

Hi Cookie- I am proud too, but who are you?!? Haha- notice that I always sign my name so people know who is writing! Thanks for commenting though- it is very exciting.

Jocelyn - I thought that you would remember the nickname my nephew called me. It's Courtney! PS Happy Birthday!

Rebz said...

AHHHHHHHHH! Yes, sorry Courtney. It was fun getting my nails done next to you yesterday. You are absolutely a cookie. A beautiful, delicious yankee PMS cookie. Thanks for remembering my birthday! XOXOX

To those who are scratching their heads, Courtney makes the most gorgeous, delicious cookies ever. They are appropriately named PMS cookies.

Well, I took the test and scored 51% (Dixie) YIKES. But, to defend myself I did live in Florida for 6 years. That is where my influence must have come from, because I was born and raised in the Finger Lakes of Upstate NY!!!

That is interesting, Heather- someone should do some research on how people's language evolves when living in another part of the country- and if the amount of influence varies by how old you are when you move.
See ya!
