Our Amish Friends take Holy Days most very seriously and will not work on the Holidays that are considered Holy. Good Friday is no different. On Good Friday Amish Men and Women do not work, and children do not attend school. Instead, this day is spent at home reflecting on the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. The first half of the day is spent in fasting and prayer, while the latter half is often spent reading the account of the crucifixion found in The Gospels. While Good Friday is often solemn and reflective, our Amish Friends know, just like the rest of us, that Sunday is coming and that is reason to celebrate!
