Amish Whit Monday 2020
Whit Monday or sometimes called Pentecost Monday is celebrated by the Amish in Lancaster County. This year Whit Monday falls on June 1st, it always falls 10 days after Ascension day. This religious holiday commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit on Jesus Christ’s disciples.
The Amish community will spend this day with friends and family. Amish businesses are closed on Whit Monday, so they are not working. If the weather is nice, you will see games of volleyball throughout the countryside. Some families will pack a lunch and have a picnic. They also love to play games of croquet.
