Amish clothing is very plain. Belts, gloves, ties, and sneakers, are banned. Amish clothing is also usually very dark and all items are handmade (authentic).
The Amish do not play musical instruments because it is viewed as a means of self-expression which can be taken as pride or superiority. Amish church songs are derived from the old hymn book, the Ausbund.
The Amish do not normally celebrate public holidays, but they take those days off. They do celebrate Christmas, Easter, and Good Friday. Also, they recognize Thanksgiving, New Years, and the Fourth of July.
