A small suburb of New York City located approximately 1 hour (by car or train) NW of manhattan. Redding is often characterized as the home of alcoholic children and popped-collar snobs, but is in fact a great community. If you're looking to raise a family, you'll be hard pressed to find a safer, more wholesome environment for your children. The public schools (although ranked very highly) do suffer from some of the moral decay written about by previous visitors to this site. Supermarkets are close, with an even greater variety of outlets available within 20 minutes driving distance. Home styles vary from very modest residences to sprawling estates with sweeping lawns, pools, and tennis courts. Redding does lack ethnic and religious diversity, as it has long been considered less than welcoming to non-WASPs. However, all the cultural diversity New York City has to offer is only an hour away.
If you're looking for a safe place to raise your kids, Redding, CT, is a great choice.

To be extremely hairy and gross.
I was watching a 70's porno flick and the chick had a full redding downstairs.

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

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!
He won the 30-rack challenge when he was 17? He must be from Redding.

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 small, rich town in southern CT. A place were full rich kids. In Redding u have to at least be on a sport team. Redding is also known for its high test scores, making the kids very smart and good test takers. Around here its proably 95% white and very lil diversity. The girls will be wearin abercrombie, tiffany jewelry, coach bags and Uggs and the guys will also be wearing abercrombie , polo shirts and nikes. rarley anyone acts ghetto anymore except for a few people.
