How to Tell if Someone is from New England

New England is weird. We speak weirdly and we love foods others think are strange. We are wicked unique and maybe even a little crazy. I’d say we’re the GOAT, but we all know that’s Tom Brady. New England has a lot of history behind it, more than most even know. We are the origin of many things: The Patriots, the first Thanksgiving, Dunkin Donuts, Maple Syrup, Ben and Jerry’s and of course much more. When someone is from New England you just know, even if you don’t know, you know. “How do you just know?” well..
