Hendersonville, Tennessee is a quaint city about 25 miles North of Nashville that most people have never heard of or been to. However, if you are one of the lucky residents of "The City by the Lake," then here are nine things you can probably relate to:
1. Saying you're from Nashville when on vacation.
When visiting out-of-state on vacation and someone asks where you are from, it is usually much easier to just say "Nashville" than "I'm from Hendersonville," which is typically followed by either "Oh where is that?" or "Oh yeah! I've heard of Hendersonville! That's in North Carolina, right?"
2. Friday night football is for everyone, not just the students.
Whether you're there to cheer on the Commandos, the Bison, or the Buccaneers, you can bet that a majority of the city is watching a Friday night high-school rivalry football game while the cheering and insults from the student section circulate the stands.
3. When people DO know where Hendersonville is they ask if you've ever met Taylor Swift.
4. Taking a brief *Moment of Silence* to remember Kids Kingdom.
While the $100,000 that Taylor Swift donated to the city to rebuild and revamp our beloved playground, Kids Kingdom, after the flood of 2010 washed it away was extremely generous, our memories and childhood were taken away with the old wooden structure.
5. Trick-Or-Treating in Ballentrae.
6. Celebrating the Fourth of July on the Third of July.
7. The inevitable trolling on the "HIP Hendersonville" Facebook page.
8. Preparing for a "chance of snow" as if an apocalypse had begun.
If the local news station reports that there is even the slightest chance of snow and you just happened to be running low on milk and bread, then you better just prepare to starve because the rest of the community has already wiped the shelves clean of all grocery stores within a 15 mile radius.
