A little background before we talk about this blatant lie a Snapple lid read regarding Maine.

So back in high school, I was the guy who did the morning announcements. From freshman year to senior year, I would start every morning announcement with "Gooooooood morning Pentucket...", and end with a "Snapple fact of the day."

If you are unfamiliar, Snapple puts facts inside their glass bottle lids. I loved reading those suckers on a daily basis. No, I did not drink a Snapple a day. I got them from a website like Git Hub.

It was not until today, when I've been out of high school for 10 years (and 14 years since starting the "Snapple fact of the day") that I realized they were all a lie.

Okay, I may be exaggerating, but once you find one "fact" that is not true, you suddenly question every single one.

Was I feeding my peers lies every morning for four years?

On the New England Nature Enthusiasts Facebook page, a woman posted a fact directly from a Snapple lid. It read:

"Mount Katahdin in Maine is the first place in the U.S. to get sunlight each morning."

You see where this is going. IT. IS. NOT. TRUE.

The part of the United States that sees the sunrise first, before anywhere else in America, is indeed in Maine, just not Mount Katahdin.

From early October to early March, the first sight of sunrise in the US is visible from Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National  Park.

Outside of those dates, the first sunrise is visible from West Quoddy Head in Lubec, Maine.
