Fewer people go to church, fewer people know traditional southern cooking, and fewer people engage in traditional southern pastimes.

    My perspective might be a little skewed. I lived outside of the south for about 25 years, then moved back, and the area I am living in has had a higher influx of transplants than most other parts of the South. Either way, I am fine with it, but it is considerably different than it was 25-30 years ago.
    We recently moved into a new subdivision and I mentioned to my wife that it was odd that after a month or so we had only one neighbor come over and welcome us to the neighborhood. When we did see people outside, they didn't appear to be overly friendly for the most part, either. Turns out that most of the people in here are from up north, moved here for a very large steel mill that was built a couple of years ago. Our subdivision has the name "Charleston" in it, but it appears it should have been named after Cleveland or Philadelphia instead.

    I see you are in DeRidder. If you think that's humid, go south to the real Cajun country, like Lafayette, Breaux Bridge, Morgan City, or south of New Orleans, That's where the real humidity is. I am originally from N Louisiana ( W Monroe) and now live in E Texas and complain about humidity, until I go back down there during the summer.

    Good: Chicken Fried Steak, Biscuits & Gravy, BBQ (pork & beef), Chili, Mexican food (at least in Texas and New Mexico).

    You hear: "Good Morning", "Hey", "Yes Sir", "Yes Ma'am", "Let me get that door for you"......

    Folks wave at you on the road.

    Folks will pull over to let you pass on the road.

    It is OK to wear camouflage everywhere....and it makes folks feel safe, not nervous.

    Y'all have a great day!

    That's very true. When I lived in the south (20 miles east of Nashville) the amount of waving I did was like a work out . Not so much while driving, but I'd sit on my front porch A LOT and random cars driving by would wave like they knew me as did I in return.

    Having lived most my life in the north (40 miles west of Chicago) the most common thing is just to stare at people as they drive by like you've never seen another human being before.

    Only a few days after I moved back north I was riding down the rode and the habit of waving was still with me. I passed a house with quite a few folks hanging out front and I noticed one lady was watching me ride by so I waved. After I waved everyone around her turned to look at me like I dropped a bomb out of my window....not one wave in return.

    I read somewhere that accents are always something that every one else ​has.

    Wow! Some of those were just spot on! In New Orleans, however, we use Blue Plate mayonnaise. And you can tell the difference.

    Funny, haven't seen a firefly since I moved to Texas, but used to see them all the time in Ohio. Of course, here I live in a big city, and lived in the country for a lot of my time in Ohio.

    You know you're in the South when...;

    During Spring & Summer...you have to fight off the man-made scourge and bane to all vehicles on the road...the dreaded Love-Bug.
    Urban legend has it love-bugs are synthetic—the result of a University of Florida genetics experiment gone wrong...just folklore mind you.

    How to combat this particular auto pest? What I do is when traveling, as soon as I reach my destination...straight to the car (self), wash!

    The Mrs. told me she heard that applying car wax to the entire front (minus windshield), end (don't forget the mirrors), and letting it dry before you depart (long distance

    driving), will protect your car form all matter of flying bugs.

    Just spray it off at your destination.

    I tried the Mrs. advice when I drove from Fort Drum, NY to my birth town of East Lansing, MI...and it worked like a charm!

    For me... I find I've entered the south when I started to see signs telling me how far it is to Vancouver and Seattle in kilometres and miles.

    Well a bit north of the border, if you ever visit Vancouver then go north to see the rest of BC you will see what I mean. Those lowermainland types... they are an odd bunch.
