8 Signs You Are A True Cape Codder
The High Pointe Inn

Cape Cod. There's no quite place like it. But the only people that truly understand this are the true Cape Codders. Aren't sure if that's you?

Here's 8 ways to know:

1. It's on Cape.

Trust me, if you say it wrong, we'll make sure to correct you.

2. You aren't a local if you vacation here every summer.

Many claim to be "locals" on Cape. If you are one of the many that vacation here every summer but don't live here year round: You. Are. Not. A. Local. I've lost track of how many times I've had to tell people this.

3. You know the Lobster Claw theme song by heart.

Every single word. Honestly, it's sad if you don't know it at this point.

4. When tourists ask for the best places to go, you send them to the worst.

I'm not going to lie, I do this all of the time. There is no way I'm telling everyone my secrets. Chances are, if you ask a local for the best places, they will send you to the most crowded/worst places on Cape Cod. We like to keep some things to ourselves!

5. You know that tourists don't know how to use rotaries.

The amount of times that I've had to lay on the horn, or move out of the way because a dingle-brain can't figure out how to use a rotary is outrageous. And yes, it's called a rotary. If you call it a traffic circle, you're dead to me.

6. You work 40+ hours a week during the summer.

Most of us are out here working doubles.

7. You know the absolute best places to watch the sunset.

And in case you missed it, just check your Snapchat. I guarantee there will be at least 15 stories of it.

8. You get excited once Labor Day Weekend is over.

Finally, you get the Cape back to yourself. Just before all the good places close down for the season!

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
