Let Our Ohio Amish Country Getaway Teach You About Amish Christmas Traditions

There are a lot of myths as to whether the Amish celebrate Christmas or not.  At one Ohio Amish Country getaway you can take a tour that will explain how the Amish live and how they celebrate Christmas.  Did you ever wonder if there are Christmas trees in Amish homes?  Or if they exchange Christmas gifts?  Or if they bake cookies and holiday treats like us "English" do?  This is your chance to find out.   Your tour will include a special dinner consisting of 7-layer salad, homemade bread, turkey, ham, sweet potato casserole, noodles, dressing, holiday punch and homemade desserts.  This package is offered Thanksgiving weekend and the weekend of December 12, 2010.  While you are visiting Holmes County Amish Country you can take time to visit the bakeries, chocolate factory, cheese factories, and wineries to take home some specialty foods for the holidays.
