    “Going blue” Probably a reference to Blue laws dating back to the seventeenth century. The puritans decided certain things were morally reprehensible and forbid lots of things. Dirty jokes was probably one of them. Blue laws still exist.
    The blue laws in Pasadena forbid parades on Sunday. So if New Years falls on Sunday, we shuffle the Rose Parade to the next day.

      Thanks Kristi, had no idea and your theory sounds a lot more reasonable that Jamie’s “Smurf,” guess. Thanks so much for listening.
