New Wilmington Amish Christmas school program

New Wilmington Amish
A week back I wrote about how Amish celebrate Christmas, with a mention of the holiday program that takes place in many Amish schools. 

Rick shares a photo from a recent visit to the New Wilmington, PA Amish community, taken during the Christmas Eve program at a local one-room school.

For the life of me, I don't know how they get their big families in those buggies! Why doesn't someone make a bigger one - or do they have those for family outings? That picture is so precious and old-fashioned looking - I love it!

Beth, you are right, the buggies can be pretty cramped sometimes...I remember a few rides where usually I had to carry a little one on my lap for lack of room. There is some variation in size among the various models and groups, but no 'stretch' buggies, at least not used by Amish (though sometimes they are used for guided tours).
