You’re So Lynchburg If …Thanksgiving Edition

What a great time to come home for the holidays. They now sell beer on the Lynchburg Square. The weather’s gonna be absolutely perfect this weekend. And you know mama’s been in the kitchen since at least Tuesday cooking all your favorites. There are some things that just make Lynchburg special. After all … we are the most famous small town in America. So we asked our readers, “What makes you so Lynchburg if …” and they did not disappoint.
