Twinsburg for twice the fun: Multiples rally in the US town
Twinsburg, US - Something was in the air in this small Ohio town founded by identical twins 200 years ago: Last week, day, endless sets of twins made the singly born feel out of place at the Twins Days Festival. “Being twins, it’s actually really awesome because you’re automatically born with a best friend that you get to experience everything growing up together with. And nobody gets you like your twin,” Carolyn Barrington said.
Added her twin brother Nathaniel: “Yep, couldn’t have said it better myself.” For identicals, there is the odd twist of being not always identifiable - even to one’s own mom. “It happens quite often - even with our parents when they were alive,” identical Jon Anderson told AFP.
His mother ‘would call me Jack, and I’d say, I’m Jon!’ “One time, I had to show her my driver's licence because she didn’t believe me,” he laughed.
