    Alabama is known as the “Heart of Dixie”, and has been for many years, (all the way from King Cotton to the Space Program). Yellowhammer is the state bird, but it is not seen in all parts of the state. I grew up in Alabama, and now live just North in Tennessee. I love them both.

  • Jada says:

    Many of the nicknames came about for specific reasons. I’m from Tennessee and we were even taught in elementary school, way back in the old days (1970s -lol), it became the Volunteer State because of so many men, including Davy Crockett, volunteering for various wars, especially the battle at the Alamo.

    Where is Washington D.C.? Although it is not a numbered state and just a district, it should have been listed. I suppose “The Capitol” would be the name.

    Colorado should be called, The Rabbit Hole state, because coming to Colorado is like falling in the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland. It’s beautiful and cannabis is legal, as it should be. I wish all fifty states where free to choose.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
