Amish Fun Facts 3

Amish fun facts Comments: 17

I wanted to share more Amish fun facts. I hope you enjoy these. Many people ask me about the day to day happening in Amish life.

  • Do they celebrate holidays?
  • What kind of toys do the children play with?
  • How does that dating thing really work?

I’ve enjoyed visiting with Amish families and asking these questions myself. Click on each picture to enlarge it, and feel free to share on your Facebook pages or twitter feeds or just forward the email to someone who enjoys learning about the Amish. These pictures are from Amish communities in Ohio and Indiana. If you ever get the chance to visit, they’re both wonderful places to go.

You may occasionally read different and even conflicting things in Amish books. This is because each community does things a little differently. Their churches operate independently, although they share the same traditions. The Ordnung (rules) of each community are decided by local leadership and members. What have you learned about the Amish that surprised you? Leave a comment and I’ll choose one winner to send an Amish prize package to.
