When the stars of ‘Duck Dynasty’ celebrate Christmas, they really don’t mess around! Jep Robertson and Jessica Robertson revealed their surprising and heartwarming traditions in a new interview — and you’ll never believe what the stuffed main dish is at their holiday dinner!
Jep Robertson and Jessica Robertson love to make their Christmas special by starting to decorate for the holiday before Thanksgiving! They’re also always prepared to receive a crazy gag gift from Robertson family matriarch Kay Robertson — kitten pot holders, anyone?
‘Duck Dynasty’ Family Reveals Crazy Dish They Eat During Christmas
“A day or two before Thanksgiving, we go to a Christmas tree farm and let the kids pick out a tree. We cut it down, bring it home and decorate it. I stay up late and finish decorating the house,” Jessica told US Weekly. Her mother-in-law, Kay, decorates by setting out “Christmas villages” and prepares her gag gifts to give to everyone. A past gift has been a kitten pot holder!
Jessica also takes their children Lily, 10, Merritt, 9, Priscilla, 7, and River 5, to go see Santa at the mall because she loves the “cheesy pics!”
But what exactly do they eat when they gather at Miss Kay and Phil Robertson‘s home on Christmas with the rest of the Robertsons? Purducken! It’s a chicken stuffed inside a duck, inside a turkey, inside a suckling pig! “We eat until we’re stuffed,” Jep says. Hmm — we’re not so sure we have the stomach to try the Robertson family delicacy!
