Traditions, Superstitions And Sundaying
ROB BOWE The pioneers of Dodge County were guided by hard work and pride in the land. In rural areas the individual churches were the social as well as the religious centers of the pioneers’ lives. Hard work, honesty and pride in the land was what one lived. Many lived by old country folklore traditions and superstitions before the era of people attending high school and college. Early American founder Benjamin Franklin made a living off printing a yearly almanac capitalizing on these old folklore sayings and traditions.
