• The Amish Community (Part 2)



    First, you presented the Amish community and then watched the beginning of the video again to complete their portrait:

    Here are additionnal information about the Amish:

    The Amish fled / ran away / escaped Europe especially Germany and Switzerland to the USA in 1693 because they were persecuted.
    Thus, they look forward to living their religion freely / as they want and to being cut from / secluded from the modern world.
    They use naturel gas, wood and propane instead of electricity. So, they have a backward lifestyle.

    Then, you focused on the importance of clothing:

    Here is what you said about it:

    Amish girls only wear one dress for church and their wedding. They take off / remove the white piece after the wedding and they put it back for their funeral.
    Amish boys wear different hats to tell teens apart from adults. Teens wear flat hats during the Running Around Period / Rumspringa
    Boys and girls can choose if they want to leave the community or to stay. Furthermore, they can date.
