  • That man banned pretty much everything fun. Pie, dancing, going to the theater. The Puritans brought some of those stuffy ideas to America with them, too. A lot of them didn't celebrate Christmas.

  • well pie vs church
    I guess the question boils down to pie that is blek or pie that is good.
    If it is good pie just point me to the nearest solstice celebration...our head minister is a real foodie so he would probably be with me LOL ; )

  • Lol, I wonder if Mr. Cromwell rolled in his grave at the thought of "American Pie?" Don't mind me, been home too long with the kids, been on CM too much today, lol.
