look up any word, like timebomb:
Voted the Best Small Town in CT, Redding retains authenticity in the face of prevalent mini-mansion developments found in the rest of fairfield county. Looking for a gas station, restaurant, or ATM? Good luck. Roads rarely accomodate two cars at one time, but this doesn't stop us from pushing 60 mph. Although a percentage of adolescents attend private school, most of the youth in Redding develop their drinking stamina in the grips of public school. It's safe to say that most Barlow students have tried most drugs by highschool graduation. Kids have known eachother since their requisite involvement in youth soccer or lacrosse, and your best friend's dad was the coach. "Best car" in highschool was awarded to a super-expensive SUV, but the car you loved the most were your friends' old school volvos and you mostly traveled around in hoardes of Jeeps. We push drunkenness beyond all social acceptability, and listen to music that you will never hear on the radio. Popularity is a meritocracy; interesting people reign. Also, we're proud to be from a blue state and while the rest of Fairfield County voted for Bush, we were Kerry all the way. See you at the late night funk party!

To be extremely hairy and gross.

I saw this bum on the street and he was so redding he looked like a wookie.

Redding is a small town (8,500 people) about 1 hour outside New York City that is located in Fairfield County. People in Redding are classy and of course preppy. Most likely if you live here one or more of your parents commutes to NYC by train. Parents make loads of money, participate in cocktail parties, and play tennis and cart around their younger kids to soccer and lacrosse practice. Teenagers have nothing better to do then spend their parent’s money on expensive clothes, drugs and alcohol because there is nothing to do. Yet, they still manage to take home state championships in sports such as soccer and basketball and eventually go off to the Ivy Leagues. Do not be surprised to see parents participating in drinking events right next to their kids. If no one is around in the summer; you can take a car ride to Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and discover a lot of people from Redding there. Pop your collar. Finally, don't be alarmed if kids between the ages of 13 and 17 fit the description of an alcoholic.
Jim: How much money does your dad make?

Bob: 190,000 a year

Jim: OMG I FEEL SO BAD FOR YOU. Your family is poor why didn't you tell me? You can't live in Redding then.

Babies born with this surname are automatically bestowed with a high level of awesomeness aswell as being gifted with creativity. They are often pretty good singers and musicians. They can be found to either be redheads or have the redhead gene (hence the name REDding) and are very likely to be random, can be found hugging tress in thr nude, possessing a quirky sense of humour and to be ridiculously good looking. If you came across a sexy, yet slighty bonkers redhead/red-tinged hair, they're likely to be a Redding. It is rare to come across one that is bestowed with also an astonishing amount of special super powers and/or aliases such as being a ninja, a cosmic warrior and/or being able to speak to cats, for example. If you do come across one of these Reddings, approach with great caution; they're are a fascinating yet unpredictable species.
Otis Redding- One of the greatest soul singers of his time

'The Redding Brothers' is an awesome rock band...
i happen to be a Redding, having been blessed with virtuoso, and creativity aswell as having the ability to talk to cats and know my way round some nunchucks :P

A smallish city, vastly expanding, consisting mainly of caucasians. Those residing in Redding who aren't caucasian usually stay in groups of large numbers, since a large part of the white population are racist assholes. Residents are usually one form of white trash or rednecks, slutty whores or actual prostitutes. filled with tweekers, ignorant morons, and religious fanatics, this is a city that no one ever visits voluntarily, but once someone ends up in Redding they find it extrmely difficult to ever escape. A vast black hole of filled with shit, and very few intelligent persons.
"We traveled through the northernmost area in California until we came across a somewhat interesting looking place called Redding, little did we know it was actually a vast shithole filled with mornonic tweekers and slutty whores."

A small town in Fairfield County, CT. Redding has many residents with small businesses, artists, New York City commuter types, and local business workers. A great community with friendly people. Unlike its stereotype, it generally isn't overrun by rich snobs and their alcoholic children, although, like everywhere, there are some. High school students generally do get into drugs at some point during their high school career. The "deep" and "artsy", "interesting" kids tend to be the actual most popular and the obnoxious party kids tend to just think they're the most popular. There really is no social heirarchy. The test scores are very high. Most everyone in Redding is a liberal democrat, but no one is really passionate about politics. The roads are tiny, twisty, and difficult in the winter, but the town is beautiful all year round and the police always need some action so they're happy to help. New York City is just an hour away and the surrounding, less historically wary, towns have many shops, restaurants, and other entertainment. There are a few restaurants in town. There is little diversity, but everyone is pretty open minded so no one is likely to be discriminated against. Most people are healthy eaters and exercise often. The town lets you be very private if you want or very social with that "small town" love. It's not hard to become a big fish in a little pond if you want to be, just be prepared to push hard if you want to be anything more than that.
