WHEN MY AUNT WAS A LITTLE GIRL, HER AND MY MOTHER USE TO
PLAY A GAME CALLED SANCTIFIED CHURCH. THIS GAME HAD NO
RULES OR GOAL. IN THE GAME THE CHILDREN WOULD SIT UNDER A
TENT, MADE OF A GRASS SACK NAILED TO THE HOUSE WITH TWO
BROOMSTICKS STUCK TO THE OTHER END OF THE SACK AND
DRIVEN INTO THE GROUND, UNDER THIS TENT THE CHILDREN
WOULD SIT ON TIN DRUMS AND SING AND CLAP AS THEY SAW
OTHERS DO IN CHURCH.

Where learned: TENNESSEE ; MARTIN
