30+ Strange & Weird Sunday Laws (Blue Laws)

Strange & Weird Sunday Laws (Blue Laws)

These are either laws that use to be in effect or still are in effect. I heard a radio station, J103, mention some while listening to their station. So I thought I would come up with a list for you all. Some of these are called Blue Laws, laws that prevent you from doing things on God’s Day.

  1. You cannot eat candy hour and half before church on Sunday. – Salem, West Virginia
  2. It’s Illegal to eat ice cream at a counter on Sunday. – Winona Lake, Wisconsin

Those were the two I heard on their radio station. So I figured I would look up more and share them below.
