Do the Amish Celebrate Thanksgiving???
Yes, but they do it differently. They gather at their family’s home. Many of generations live close together whether in the same house, on the same property, or in the same community. They meet together to give thanks for the blessings that God gives them.
Most Amish do not eat Turkey on Thanksgiving. They have a large meal with one to two meats as the main course and many side dishes. You have to remember that all of their meals are cooked on a stove with fire (rarely propane or gas). Do you remember those old style stoves that have burners and a flue going out of the house so that the smoke can escape? That is what we are talking about here. If you have ever camped out and cooked on an open flame you understand how hard it is to cook something. Imagine a large meal! This holiday is a time to reflect, catch up on the news of the community, be with family & friends, and give thanks to God.
