You Know You're a Texan If...12 Ways to Know for Sure
We Texans are a proud folk. We think of our state as its own little country and love to point out we are the only state in the union not annexed -- we signed a treaty -- and that affords us a certain let's call it swagger. A lot of people don't care for it, but it's all in good fun (mostly).
The truth is there is a lot to love about the Lone Star State, but to truly be a Texan, there are a number of things you have to know. If there were a test required to become a citizen of Texas -- there isn't? -- these items might not all make the list of questions, but they are requisite knowledge for anyone who has lived here and knows the truth about the world as we know it.
There's that whole "everything is big in Texas" thing and that includes parties.
