Thanksgiving and the Amish

December 9, 2016

Most Amish recognize Thanksgiving, which they celebrate in a quiet and contemplative way, with an emphasis on the joy of having families together for the great meal. Some orders fast before the meal, or use the designated day for other activities. Most businesses are closed on Thanksgiving, as elsewhere, although some local restaurants will be open for the holiday during special hours.
