The Return of the Stupid Question

12 Mar

Lately I’ve been showing my ignorance through vocabulary words, but today I bring you another in the series of things I just don’t get, but probably should.

If my endnote is correct, Election Day was the 50th day of Easter which would fall on a Sunday every single year, and yet the townspeople were thrilled to be off work and school for the holiday.  Did they work on Sundays, or is this just a little “oopsie” on Hawthorne’s part?

    Wow Christina maybe you are the first to catch a TSL blooper. How cool would that be!

      Pretty awesome. Now, can someone just verify that I’m right? You have no idea how fun it would be to have something to hold over Hawthorne’s head.
