As expected, the Duggar family has some very intense feelings about the Easter holiday. ’19 Kids & Counting’ star Michelle Duggar is sharing some of the annual family traditions, as well as explaining why they call it ‘Resurrection Day’ instead of Easter.

Michelle Duggar, 47, gets to re-live some of her favorite family traditions every year on what she calls “Resurrection Day.” Click inside to watch and find out what they are!

Michelle Duggar — “Easter Is About Christ”

While some families are coloring eggs and putting together baskets filled with chocolates for the Easter Bunny to drop off, Michelle Duggar and her children has other plans.

“We really want to make the focus and emphasis on the fact that it’s the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” Michelle shares in this new behind-the-scenes video. “We sing songs, we draw pictures of the cross, and we make cookies.”

Noticeably missing from Michelle’s description of “Resurrection Day”? Chocolate bunnies, egg hunts, and Easter bunnies. Why is that? Because Michelle makes sure her children are only participating in activities that will help them learn the the beliefs about their religion and Jesus Christ’s resurrection.

Of course it comes as no surprise that Michelle and her brood would want to focus primarily on the religious aspect, considering they all have intense relationships with God.

Who is that thanks to? Mom, of course! But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a little bit of fun involved.

“We have cute little fold-out pictures that we’ve made over the years,” Michelle shared. “We might do it again the next year.”
