When I was little I used to think that thunder and lightning was God having a party in heaven with Jesus because they got bored up there. I thought that the thunder was the loud music or someone passing out on the floor, and the lightning was the strobe lights. Boy was I taught to believe wierd things! I suppose it's because my mum thought I was too young to understand science when I was 3 :D

My husband's mother used to tell him that when it was thundering that was just God moving furniture around his house.
