These 9 Crazy Laws in Delaware Will Leave You Scratching Your Head in Wonder
From the earliest days of the state all the way to the early 1940s, it was virtually impossible to do almost anything in public on a Sunday in Delaware. Called the “Blue Laws,” they were rarely enforced, but you could be ticketed or locked up for working, conducting business, or any other number of things. Remnants of those weird laws still remain, lobbed in with some laws that towns and the state still enforce.
