When the ward newsletter is on your doorstep the first Sunday of the month - even though you are never mo!
When the Book of Mormon is on the "my favorites" reading list distributed by the school. ("Don't worry," said my DD. "It's on the fiction list.")
When your HS daughter skips her regular class to attend seminary with her friends and the teacher never reports her absent.
When all the kids on the French study abroad vote to attend a local sacrament meeting rather than see the sights.
When one of the kids in the car pool asks your (never mormon) son where he'd like to go on his mission. When your son answers that he's going to go to college, not on a mission and the little kid riding in the back gasps in horror, declaring: "NOT going on a mission?! That's just EVIL!"

Also, you know you're in Mormon-Land when you get invites to wedding receptions for people you don't even vaguely know because your name is on the ward list even though you are NEVER MORMON!
You know you're in Mormon-Land when your co-workers post wedding reception announcements on the work bulletin board because they're (a) too cheap to buy enough to send to everyone or (b) don't care enough to actually invite your personally. Honestly? What am I supposed to do with that?
You know you're in Mormon-Land when you are advised NOT to put the wedding announcement in the paper because ward members will see it and assume they are invited to the reception.
RSVPs to invitations? Thanks you notes? Forget about it. Never happens.
Practice for kids' sports teams never happens on Monday night. And on Tuesday and Wednesday coaches don't get all the team at practice because they'd be missing YM/YW. (Why sign your kids up for sports in the first place if you can't make a 2 month commitment?)
