Southern Hospitality, Southern sayings a little bit of fun.
Thought I share some Southern saying just in case you might be a visiting your southern relatives.
First and foremost, a Southerner has to be modest and never highfalutin and be friendly at all times, even if you don’t know the person from a hole in the ground.
Some of these saying have explanations but others you jest might have ta figure out on ya own.
