Christmas Carols In Cheyenne = Jail & Fine
Call the police! I want them arrested and thrown in jail!
You’re warm in your home while outside, a brisk winter night with snow lightly falling brings the sound of carolers approaching your door singing sweet songs of ♫♪ comfort and joy. ♪♫♪
“Quick! Call the police! I want them arrested and thrown in jail!” It could happen.
A Christmas carol or noël (French for "Christmas), is a song on the theme of Christmas and that holiday season. The first Christmas hymns can be traced to 4th century Rome. Between then and current day Cheyenne, Wyoming, they became illegal to sing without permission. Anthony Vibbard wrote in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle “You could wind up in the slammer for six months or pay up to $750 in fines.” This due to a 119 year old law that is technically still enforceable, though maybe not constitutionally legal.
Would it happen? Not likely, but it could if someone had their Grinch on.
