Looking for homemade Halloween costume ideas?

It’s that time of year again where the #1 question on everyone’s mind is “What am I going to be for Halloween?” Buying the same costume as everyone else in town is boring. Do something totally "out of the box"–like making your Halloween costume out of leftover moving boxes!

Celebrate the Miss America Pageant!

Some people throw Super Bowl parties in February…but my “Super Bowl” is the Miss America pageant this month.

Now that I work in the moving industry and get the chance to speak with people all over the country, I'm even more aware of all of the states these beautiful women represent.

Nicknames for People Who Live in Different States

So you’re moving to a new state? Awesome! What do they call residents in that state? Let’s say it’s Kansas. Kansans? Kansanites? Kansanians?

The official term for these nicknames is demonym – and they can sometimes be a bit confusing.  Have you ever considered that if you’re from the United States of America, you’re American, but if you’re from the Netherlands, you’re Dutch? State resident nicknames can be just as confusing.

But, with some research on what you call people from each state, we made it easier for you. We’ll cover the regions, then all of the states and territories in the United States.

What U.S. city has the largest population?

We used data from the 2010 U.S. Census, and with a population of 8,175,113, it looks like New York City, NY wins by a landslide! It beats the next closest city by more than 4 million people. We're impressed NYC (especially considering that our home state of Arkansas has a population of only 2.95 Million). Now that we know what city has the absolute highest population, let's take a closer look at it and the next 9 largest U.S. cities (this data came from the 2010 U.S. Census, too).
