States in the US with Odd Alcohol Laws

Many states in our nation today still have what are called, “Blue laws”. What is a blue law you might ask? A law from Colonial times prohibiting certain activities such as purchasing alcohol on a Sunday. These were strict religious laws and strictly enforced. Today many of these laws are considered obsolete, yet many of them still remain on the books. A few examples.
