Two Worlds - Dutch Country
The Dutch folk culture is divided into two completely different ways of life. The Amish & related religious sects represent a minority of the Dutch population & are known as Plain Dutch. The majority of Pa. Dutch Lutherans & Reformed denominations are known as Gay Dutch. The difference between them is that the Gay Dutch accept the world as it is. The Plain Dutch separate themselves partially from the rest of the world in matters of dress, discipline & nonconformity.
