A Very Duggar Easter

Happy Easter!

How do the Duggars celebrate? Michelle shares the details in her latest TLC Parentables post: 

We call it Resurrection Sunday because we really want the children to know why we’re celebrating Easter. Jim Bob and I really wanted the kids to understand the true meaning of Easter, that it isn’t about all the candy and eggs.

To prepare, the Duggars do crafts and bake and decorate heart and cross shaped cookies.

The older ones help their little siblings with the cookies and crafts and share their Easter memories. I love to listen to them talk about how they used to ice their cookies or do their crafts when they were little. It’s such a sweet way to make memories.

Instead of Easter baskets filled with chocolate and candies, Michelle prepares a special bag of treats for each of her nineteen children, which includes beef jerky, chips, and a labeled jar of refrigerated pickles.

On Easter Sunday, the Duggars enjoy a festive fellowship dinner after church. 

For us, it’s all about Resurrection Sunday and what that means, and about those sweet memories that you choose to make for your family and your kids.

  6. Do the things she puts in the bags mean anything special to the family?

  7. The eggs also Are a symbol of the father( the shell) the son( the egg white) and the holy ghost( the yolk)

  8. I've never heard eggs are a symbol of empty tomb..I've heard a symbol of fertility. Eggs are not empty! Just saying

  9. Not true. Eggs do not symbolize an empty tomb. Sorry.

  10. A-hem - Eggs, in general, were a traditional symbol of fertility, and rebirth.[1] In Christianity, they symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus:[2][3][4] though an egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb, a bird hatches from it with life; similarly, the Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.[2][3]
