    What is Saint Michael’s Day and what significance does it have for the Amish?

    I’d appreciate an answer from someone!

    St. MIchael’s Day (Michaelmas) is September 29th. As it is my name day, I know that, and in the ancient churches (Roman, Orthodox, Anglican), it is a special day marking a seasonal transition (kind of like “first day of autumn” for the church) as well as the feast day honoring the archangel. Why the Amish, a very protestant group, observes Michaelmas, I cannot tell you. It’s an interesting question, though.

    The only holiday that I know of that the Unity ME Amish community celebrates besides their own birthdays is Thanksgiving. Not Christmas. I will ask Louella to make sure.

    What holidays do Amish celebrate?

    I live in Lancaster County, PA. As I was traveling to work this morning, there were MANY horse/buggies on the roadways very early. If I’m not mistaken, today is a religious holiday for the Amish but I cannot remember what it is … maybe All Souls Day. Does anyone know more about this? Thank you.

    Amish holidays

    The Amish holidays are the same ones still celebrated in Switzerland today, at least around Zurich where my daughter lives, though most of the activities have been secularized.

    What holidays do Amish celebrate

    I knew an Amish family that hid a Christmas tree in the closet from the Bishop and anyone not in the family. These people later jumped over.
