Twins­burg for twice the fun: Mul­ti­ples rally in the US town

Muscat Daily - - WORLD -

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.
