Connecticut Blue Laws - Jeff's Almanac


The following are bits excerpted from a book, itself more than one hundred years old:
THE FAMOUS CONNECTICUT BLUE LAWS. – These laws, enacted by the people of the “Dominion of New Haven,” became known as the blue laws because they were printed on blue paper. They were as follows…
"No one shall eat mince pies, dance, play cards, or play any instrument of music except the drum, trumpet, or jews harp."
