Yes, not all Amish do but most of them do! Are you surprised? I was.
Well they do not go out for a fancy dinner and movie, but they do give each other special Valentine’s Day treats like cookies, cakes, & such. Their children exchange valentine cards and sweets in school; however, they do not mention words such as “You’re Mine”, “I Love You” “Be Mine”. These word most of the parents look at as condoning intimate relationships with their young children.
So what about the single Amish people? They also have many winter community activities, such as sled-riding and parties/events. On the Second Day of Christmas, December 26, my wife and I went to pick up some orders from our Amish friends; we were unable to find any of our vendors in one community. We haphazardly found one of the gatherings that the young people were having. The young people were from 16 up to 30 years old. While we were there, we saw them hand-in-hand, male to male and female to female, singing around a large fire. The fire was only for warmth. Some of the young people were picking up from the games that had been played earlier and cleaning up the food area. They looked to be having a good time. We were told by one of our vendors that the young folk in their family were late getting home because they had been expected home before dark as they had no lanterns on the buggies.
