You Know You're From Snyder/Union/Northumberland County When . . .

You refer to Pennsylvania as "PA."

Philadelphia is always "Philly" and New Jersey is always "Jersey."

The first day of hunting season is considered a holiday.

Schools are closed for the Bloomsburg Fair.

You know the differences between the Amish and the Mennonites.

You go somewhere "fairly directly," "throw the horse over the fence some hay," "outen the lights," and "redd up your room."

Snow "lays" on the ground.

You shoot squirrels from your kitchen window (jokingly a West End thing).

When Joe Snedeker "calls for snow," you run to Weis for bread and milk.

You order "dippy eggs" for breakfast.

You know what real potpie is.

Buggies on the road are nothing out of the ordinary.

Tractors take up half of the road and never pull over.

Many Mennonites or Amish run puppy mills, and they accept Discover or Visa.

Your friends consider a good time to include either spotting or mudding -- perhaps both.

Late-night runs to Wal-Mart are considered fun.

When farmers spread manure in their fields, you can tell whether it's cow or chicken by the smell.

You love Middleswarth chips.

People keep electronic candle lights in their windows year-round, not just during the Christmas season.

School cancellations due to snow take half of forever to finish, because almost every town has its own school district.

You know what a whistle pig is, and have gone hunting for them.

The following were found on Facebook:

You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre, Schuylkill, Bala Cynwyd, Duquesne, New Tripoli, Tunkhannock, Punxsutawney, Tamaqua, Susquehanna, Allegheny, and Monongahela.

You can use the phrase "fire hall wedding reception" and not even bat an eye.

You own only three condiments "A-1, Heinz 57 and Heinz ketchup".

Words like "hoagie", "crick", "chipped ham", "sticky buns", "shoo-fly pie", "pierogies" and "pocketbook" actually mean something to you.

You know several places to purchase or that serve Scrapple, Summer Sausage (Lebanon Bologna), and Hot Bacon Dressing.

You know the time and location of every "wing night" in a 20 mile radius.

You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know that it comes in several colors: Red, Blue, White, Brown, Gold.

You can stop along the road to buy fruits, vegetables, or crafts on the "honor system."

You prefer Hershey's Chocolate to Godiva.

You refer to something as "a whole nother," e.g., "That's a whole nother issue."

You hear Jersey Shore and think of a small town near Williamsport, not the beach of New Jersey.

You have had a lengthy conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number.

People wear camouflage to social events.

You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.
