Social time starts at 6: Lawrence Kawvalley quilters guild meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 9: We often see Amish men and boys plowing the fields with horse drawn tractors or Amish women working in the local markets wearing their white caps and blue dresses selling their handmade Amish quilts.
While these are all important parts of Amish life, they are not the only things that make up the daily lives of the typical Amish community member.
They are certainly not a community of all work and no play. The Amish believe in working hard and resting well, which might surprise some people who do not understand the Amish way of life.
It is not all sewing Amish quilts until their fingers bleed or tilling the fields until the sun goes down. Just like any community, the Amish find time for fun and enjoy many of the same things that other people enjoy in modern communities. It is true that a typical Amish home does not have electricity, so there are no video games to play or televisions to watch, but the Amish have plenty of interesting activities that provide them the opportunity to relax, unwind, and have fun.
One of the most popular activities in an Amish community is going to auction. The Amish are a very practical people, so the opportunity to buy things at a discounted rate or to sell unused items at an auction appeals to their sense of practicality. Whenever there is going to be a large auction in or around the community, most of the townspeople attend and oftentimes the schools are even let out early for the event.
Amish men enjoy going to livestock auctions to keep up on the local area farm animal prices, as well as farming auctions where retiring farmers can sell their equipment or livestock.
Amish women enjoy going to household auctions where they can sell many of their newly made Amish quilts or purchase new household goods, such as furniture, linens, or dishware.
The auction is also a place where the Amish can meet up with friends or even mingle with their English acquaintances outside the Amish community. In the evenings after dinner has been served and all the chores have been completed, most Amish people take this quiet time to read a good book, catch up on the local Amish news by reading an Amish produced newsletter, or write handwritten letters to distant relatives or pen pals.
The Amish really enjoy reading about things that appeal to them and spend a lot of their free time doing so. It may surprise you to know that there are many books published each year specifically written by Amish authors about the things that the Amish care about.
There are Amish quilting books, Amish cooking books, Amish farming books, and even Amish romance novels. Most Amish communities produce their own newspapers or newsletters that are distributed within the community and others that are distributed nationwide to all of the Amish communities in the country.
The Amish love knowing what farming technique a particular Amish community might be using or what new Amish quilting style some Amish quilting bees might be producing. There are even Amish newsletters made just for Amish teens that address the typical things that appeal to most teenagers, such as sports, gossip, and even dating. The Amish also enjoy corresponding with friends and relatives that they do not typically get to see on a regular basis through the writing of letters.
