"The surest sign that someone at a Christmas Eve service hasn't been in a church before?" wrote Bob Auvil. "The men don't remove their hats, and young folks play games or continue to text on their I-phones."
Donna Lee wrote, "One sure giveaway of someone who hasn't been in church before is that the person doesn't whisper but speaks in a normal tone of voice for everyone to hear."
Then there was this from Bob Hazelbaker. "Your question of today reminds us of the Midnight Mass in Sandpoint a few years ago when a group of people entered the side door shortly before the service began. Their unfamiliarity with mass and church attendance in general was made clear as the last member of the group carried in a tray of lattes."
