The Duggar family is known for their steadfast faith on "19 Kids and Counting" and Easter is a special time of the year for traditions celebrated around their house. Michelle Duggar shared that the holiday is called “Resurrection Day” in the household as it reflects the resurrection of Jesus Chris. According to the official Duggar family blog on Wednesday, the family celebrates Easter pretty much the same way every year.
The sneak peek of the reality family in the latest TLC video released on Wednesday reveals traditions observed by the family. It also offers up a statement about their faith. It appears the day is planned around family time and giving thanks on a very religious level. The family sings songs, draws pictures of the cross and decorates homemade cookies.
“I think it is fun making memories as a family,” said Michelle Duggar about her experiences over the Easter holiday. She looked excited talking about her kids and sharing how Easter will be celebrated
Looking to make an impression on the youngsters, the family comes together to recite bible verses surrounding the story of the resurrection. This offers up the chance for the family to embrace their religious values together. Setting time aside for the family moments, the kids do the same thing every year and come to expect some fun hanging together with their siblings.
So what is the favorite thing for the kids to do? Well Michelle Duggar says the kids are crazy about the cookies. Making hearts, crosses and other images, the kids get to decorate the cookies and showcase their beliefs on some edible art. Not only does it look good, they get to eat it too!
The family has never shied away from their beliefs and the core values they display on television actually is appreciated by the viewers. On “19 Kids and Counting,” the Duggar family typically showcases how they live and work while respecting their religious lifestyle. Of course, compared to other parts of the country, it might seem a little bit strange. However, when it comes to celebrating Easter (or Resurrection Day depending on what you call it) it appears that fans can relate to the fun that the kids have making cookies.
