The Mason-Dixonary: Grace

January 6, 2016 | By | Comments (3)

Hearing a certain word can tell you quicker than a road map that you’ve crossed the Mason-Dixon Line. Some terms are particular to the South, while others are just embraced more fondly here. Check back each Wednesday for more words that give voice to the spirit and soul of our region.

    The other more popular term in my family was “the blessing”. Y’all hush up and let’s say the blessings, so we can eat.

    That’s only a Southern expression? I’m really surprised.

    Bless their hearts, if people don’t say Grace to GOD before they begin eating; what to they do? Or maybe they call the prayer something else, but what?
