Photoshop? No. Stereoscopic camera? No way Jose. Prism lens? Guess again. It’s the 36th annual Twins Days Festival.

On the first weekend of August, thousands of twins make the “twin” pilgrimage to Twinsburg, Ohio. Two by two, the twins come marching in for a three-day festival of parades, look-a-like contests, a karaoke competition, golf tournament, and scientific research studies to celebrate twin camaraderie – together.

Being a twin, and having a mom who has nagged me and my brother for years to go, I decided this was the year to join our people.

So what happens when 4,000 “anomalies” come together? Let’s just say it was the most amazing, surreal, bizarre, confusing, whimsical weekend of our lives.

When they are together in a crowd of singletons, twins are identical, but when they’re compared to other twins it is clear that, even as sets, they are individuals. So what do Blurb books and twins have in common? They come in all shapes and sizes.

We’re not going to point any fingers, but two of us (the evil twins, possibly?) tried to strangle our womb mates with umbilical cord.
