According to Illinoishistory.com one tradition had by the people of this State: "All one need do, it was said, was select twelve large onions, cut away their tops, and then hollow them out. Before retiring on New Year's Eve, the onions were placed in a row and each cavity filled with salt. Old-timers believed that the amount of "water" found in the hollowed-out onions the next morning was indicative of the amount of rainfall one could expect during each month of the new year."

My wife is from Illinois, so we visit there multiple times a year. It is only about 4 hours drive from where we are in Minnesota. At least once a year, during the summer, we visit Chicago and spend a few days downtown. While there we make sure to attend a Chicago Cubs MLB game, which is played in historic Wrigley Field. I have also been to Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears NFL team.
Downtown Chicago is a myriad of shopping and points of interest. One of the newer additions is Navy Pier which has a large number of shops, and also doubles as a year-round amusement park. The subway system is also steeped in history, and is referred to by the locals as the 'L' which is short for loop, as it goes around the city.

I am from Illinois and I love it. I always catch games and it's a great city to live in. It's very unstressful and the neighbors are very nice and caring.

100,000 Strong Initiative Gets Boost from Chicago Ties to China
Illinois Related News

The Advisory Committee of President Barack Obama's 100,000 Strong Initiative, which encourages Americans to study in China, is led by former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel and departing Chicago Mayor. Richard Daley, who's been mayor for 22 years, led Chicago in engaging China and promoting cross-cultural programs. His efforts earned the Windy City the distinction of being the "the most China-friendly city" when President Hu Jintao visited in January. That distinction is helping Chicago support President Obama's goal.
