    Hex Sign Question (March 5th, 2012 at 11:41)

    Hex Sign Question

    Brittany,
    According to “Amish Country News” (http://www.amishnews.com/featurearticles/Storyofhexsigns.htm) & “Mystical Myth” (http://www.bellaterreno.com/art/a_artisan/padutch_hexsigns.aspx), this, too, is a myth often confusing Amish culture & beliefs with those of Pennsylvania Dutch, a different culture but one which is similar in appearance. Thanks for asking! You spurred me into researching this out.
