    @peachacid:  Yeah, I thought it was an established geographical fact, not determinable by public opinion…

    I can’t believe that some of you are making this into such a big deal.

    @vorpalette:  What’s weird is that people think there is more than one answer.

    @StL.Ashley:  As far as the east coast, I consider anything from Maryland south to be “The South”. Virginia to me is definitely the South. Ha but what do I know, I’m just a yankee – oh wait maybe I’m actually not ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I moved to MA from Texas, I thought New York was in New England, and got yelled at by a Bostonite for it. It was both a primer in Bostonian hostility and a useful history lesson ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @peachacid:  Thank you!

    NY is not part of New England. I haven’t heard that before? Do people from NY consider themselves part of NE? I was born, raised, and still live in New England.

    @Cougar09:  my FI’s best friend told me that i live in the “county” of massachusetts. because it’s too small to be a state. i wanted to smack him. he was joking, but still.

    as a native new englander… New Husband, ME, CT, MA, RI, VT are new england.
    not NY, not OH, not PA or MD (someone tried to tell me that maryland was attached to rhode island… i question geography lessons in schools)

    @kimm99:  Thanks! I didn’t think so but started second guessing everything I knew to be true when I read a few replies!

    haha this is great.

     

    i guess NY isn’t really part of New England- but my fiance’s hometown is like 20 mins away from CT. But I guess you have to draw the line somewhere.

    Delaware is DEFINITELY not part of NE.

    I have however, seen it refered to as a “southern” state, which drives me nuts!

    @crayfish:  Boston hostility? We’re not hostile, you crazy, cow-loving farmer from Texa… oops.

    Kidding!!!! hahaha Tongue Out I’m nothing if not aware of our reputation, thanks to extensive travel in the U.S. I used to tell an old pen pal from Arizona, “you’d be grumpy too if you’d spent the last 7 months indoors with snow up to your eyeballs!”
