"Duck Dynasty's" Si shared his favorite Christmas memory while filming, "Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas." On Dec. 12, Us Weekly reported that Si Robertson -- who is usually joking around and goofing off -- shared a very sweet moment during one of his "confessional-type" interviews for the A&E holiday special.
"We lived in a farming community. The hands that drive the tractors. . . they don't make a lot of money. Daddy had fell off an oil rig, broke his back and was not working," Si started off. He told the story about a woman who asked his mother what she was getting Si and his six siblings for Christmas. His mother told the woman that their family wouldn't be having a "traditional" Christmas because they had hit a financial rough patch.
The "Duck Dynasty" Christmas memory is one that a lot of people can relate to -- especially so many people who went through a hard time in life. There are actually a lot of celebrities who can relate to Si -- ones that grew up in poverty but made something incredible out of nothing. For Si, his family was shown incredible love during that hard time...
"Two weeks later, [the woman] comes back and hands mama an envelope. It was something like $500 or $600 in an envelope with 'Merry Christmas' on it for the kids. That's my favorite Christmas memory. This is people that didn't have much, giving a lot. Which is what Christmas is all about: giving," Si said getting a little emotional.
This "Duck Dynasty" Christmas memory is one that Uncle Si will never forget.
