TNDARLN Watch Night (20) RE: Watch Night 29 Dec 02


Wow! I grew up going to Watch Night services at our very white Baptist church during the 60s; and as Jerry mentioned, I just thought it was a Baptist-Church-in-a-dry-county's approach to New Year's Eve. I had no idea that there was a connection back to the Civil War, but it's so logical- what an amazing reason to celebrate!! Wait'll my folks hear this!

Wonder when it entered the white churches?
