17 Instagram photos that show how Mainers celebrated the holidays

As I have been known to do around special events and holidays, I flipped through Maine-related hashtags (#maine, #mainelife, #207 and #portlandmaine just to name a few) on Instagram to see how my fellow Mainers celebrated the past week and a half of holiday festivities.

SIDE NOTE: In doing so, I learned that there is a woman from Maine named Renee Cole who appears to be very well known for marketing herself as a person who looks a lot like Lady Gaga. Who knew? (You did, probably.)

So here is what it appears Mainers got up to to celebrate the holidays, as illustrated by Instagram.

WARNING: If you think that butts displayed in a totally non-sexual fashion are offensive, go no further. Because there are butts displayed in a totally non-sexual fashion below. It’s just butts, people. This is the 21st Century. Get over your butt hangups already. There is a LOT of cuteness too! Dogs! Babies! Dogs and babies! Don’t miss the cuteness just because you’re weird around butts.
