"You'll Find Love in Sugarcreek", one of the Amish-theme movies that we've watched recently. It inspired and sparked the kids interest to go see how it's like to be in Sugarcreek during the Fall. Our neighbor mentioned to us that if we pass Sugarcreek and go a little ways, there is another Amish community that is bigger than Sugarcreek that we can explore. I think we will try to find it next time.
I don't know what it is in Sugarcreek that we love going back there all the time. It is a bit far from where we live but we do enjoy seeing the countryside so whenever we have time, that's the first place we want to go.
The sight of the horse carriage always excites the kids. It also reminds me of my paternal grandpa for some reason.
It wasn't crowded when we first got there so we took the opportunity to take some pictures. We have been here many times but every time, there so many people so we don't take pictures of us but this time, we were able to take a few shots before it got crowded again.
It's definitely different and with the little town's Swiss style architecture surrounding the clock, you would say "Oh wow, what a neat feature!" The history of it is interesting and the show on the hour and the half our is great.
So what exactly this cuckoo clock do? This clock is in the Guinness Book of world records as the largest cuckoo clock in the world. Every half an hour the bird "cuckoo's", then the five piece band beautifully carved was playing as two other figures, a woman and man danced away and when the band's music stopped they all went back in to the clock. It's really entertaining to watch.
We haven't been there in the winter but I heard that the water feature on this clock is close during those times. So if you are in Sugarcreek for the first time, this cute little gem is a must see.
Have a blessed Christmas everybody!
