Twins Days 2000 ..."Reflection: 25 Years"

2,743 sets of registered multiples


The 2000 Twins Festival was exciting... but the weekend went by too fast. It was nice to have Heather with me this time ('Grammy' was babysitting- thanks, Mom!). We found that there were many 'first year' twins. Let's hope they all return next year! Some of our new friends are: Chris & John, Lloyd & Bruce, and the newly 'twins marrying twins': Darlene & Mark, and Diane & Craig. Congratulations! Heather and I participated in a new study and in doing so, got interviewed for a magazine article... Also, we spoke with Susan Y. Kohl, who is putting together a book of twin stories. When it comes out, take a look- and you will be able to read some of our stories! Andrew made it to the festival.. he almost got stuck in Greenland!!! I know Anthony was happy about that.. and so were Heather and I. The Hill Twins make Twins Days so much more fun. The Parties at the Hudson Holiday Inn were a hit once again. No Flats Fest this year... we all decided to stick around the hotel instead.. Saturday's partying lasted until 4am! It rained on Sunday.. so we skipped out earlier than usual.
We're both already looking forward to the 2001 festival!

*** The 2001 Twins Days Festival - "Double Fun in 2001" ***


The 2001 Twins Days Festival has come and gone... once again the weekend went by too fast! This was our 20th Twins Days Festival! We met up with alot of our 'twin' friends Friday night at the Hudson Holiday Inn- for the annual Friday night party. We were so happy to see that Anthony made it to Twinsburg! His wife is about 3 weeks away from having twin girls! But Anthony was able to spend a short time with us. We missed Andrew though- He stayed over in England. 2002 will be a big event- It'll be the Hill twins x 2!
We also met up with Chris & John C. These guys are fun! It was tough to say good-bye to them on Sunday.


*Susan Kohl's book signing: Twin Stories Susan had a nice reception at the Hilton Hotel on Saturday, where the twins featured in the book got free books autographed by Susan. I think Heather and I are mentioned in the book about 5 different times! Andrew & Anthony's stories are also mentioned in the book. I can't wait to read it!

*The parties at the Hudson Holiday Inn - FUN FUN FUN! The partying lasted until about 3-4am on Friday and Saturday. We met alot of new twins, and saw many old friends. People always ask us what this 'Twins Festival' is all about. It is all about socializing, celebrating 'twinness' and having a good time! Again, it was strange not having Andrew with us this year. We missed you, Andrew! Hopefully alot of the twins that weren't able to make it this year will make the trek to Twinsburg in 2002!

*The Twins Contests- Once again, Heather and I entered the "Most Look Alike" contest.. and didn't win... Next year we'll try again. A few of us think that the judges either need to change their 'judging' technique or else they need to have twins/multiples as judges.
