They were coming from different directions at different times. Then I got on FB and noticed other posts about people complaining about fireworks in other towns up to an hour away from me. I thought I had missed a holiday. So my neighbor was one of the ones having a party and when I heard some more fireworks going off, sending my dog running for the basement, I walked over to their house. I asked if I missed something on the news, or is this a holiday?
He looked at me like he was in shock I didn't know and said it was a "Rapture party, of course".
I said "Oh yeah!" (because I had heard about that silly preacher guy on the news). I waved goodbye, embarrassed. I felt really stupid......for a second.
Then, as I was walking back home, next door, to a house that was still there, because there was NO EVENT, I realized people, more than 1, in more than 1 city, were having "rapture" parties.
