Does he realize Jesus could not have actually been born in December?

I have seen so many facebook posts in the past month about how "Jesus' birthday is the reason for Christmas, not Santa and presents! Share if you agree!", that I think there's a huge amount of people out there that really believe Jesus was born on December 25th. In Derrick's case though, regardless of what he believes, he can't miss a chance to make himself feel more holy than all the heathens out there.

I don't know that I agree with this.  Most people "know" that Jesus wasn't born on December 25th, but because that's the day we've universally agreed to celebrate his birth, we treat it as his birthday.   We could have chosen any day, and it wouldn't change anything except maybe the type of decorations used.  Imagine an April 25th celebration of Jesus's birthday--it would be all pastels and baby animals and spring flowers.  I don't know if I'm making myself clear here.  Whatever date was arbitrarily chosen to commemorate Jesus's birth, his birth would be the reason for the season.   

I agree with magpye. Believe me, I know a LOT of really dumb evangelicals, but I doubt many (if any) of them think Dec. 25 is Jesus's sho-nuff birthday.

I agree sooooo much!!! I also hate, HATE with a passion when people nastily snipe, "Christmas has NOTHING to do with Jesus, you idiot!!! It's a pagan / whatever other religion they can think of / etc holiday!!!"

This drives me crazy, because even if the early church leaders had not chosen December 25 to line up with festivals the people already had, they would have celebrated Christmas at some point in the year. It likely wouldn't be the big spectacle it was today, but it would still be a church holiday. It might be on the scale of something like Pentecost, but it would still be a holiday. The fact that we have the wreaths, snowflakes, and poinsettias is an added bonus, but it's not the holiday itself. 

I just wish people would chill. I remember learning in high school about how leaders converted others to Christianity by scheduling Christmas and Easter during major festivals, and I thought, "cool! What a bright idea!" People all over the world have converted others over the centuries, and as long as these people converted willingly, who cares? It's just a piece of trivia that shouldn't be so offensive. I hate how one side gets in your face and screams about how Christmas isn't about Jesus, thinking you'll be utterly defeated as you sink into a well of tears, while the other side (like Derick) absolutely insists on being ignorant, and eschewing anything secular like Santa. Why can't we all just enjoy the holiday however we see fit? /rant

Some Fundies are very into the Jewish roots of Christianity. I think that secretly they prefer the angry, vengeful God of the Old Testament to the loving, merciful Jesus of the New Testament. They love restrictions and prohibitions like the Ten Commandments and the rules laid down in the Book of Leviticus and they get turned on by the idea of God raining terrible punishments down on offenders. They see the Jews of the Old Testament as far more righteous and worthy of admiration than the Jesus who inexplicably keeps loving and forgiving everybody.

 

I could easily see Derick falling into this mindset. Of course, if he and his fellow fanatics had any real understanding of Jewish theology, with its emphasis on peace and forgiveness, they wouldn’t be nearly as interested.

The fact that they named their son Israel attests to this.

Hey, I thought Jill grew up believing that a Christmas tree was pagan and not Christian. Her parents didn't allow a tree for this reason. Michelle herself stated this in an early episode of their show.

The Duggars have had Christmas trees.  They've been in videos posted online.

The Dullards visit Famy. I hope Izzy is chewing gum or bread. If that's a tooth, the kid's in trouble when his permanent teeth come in.

Sam looks like he's wondering whether the drop from Derrick's arms is doable, or whether squirming from his grip would result in an injury severe enough to hinder his escape plan...

Little late to this, but had to comment on the video where Derick is 4 and it's 1993.

Although 4-year-old Derick and present day Izzy have similar voices, Izzy looks more like Jill than he does Derick. It's especially evident in the picture with the boys in front of the Christmas tree.

Here's a picture with the oldest four - although I can never remember which one is Jana and which one is Jill, I think Jill is on Michelle's lap.

I wasn't sure who Sam resembled, since I don't think he resembles Jill as much as Izzy does, but as I am looking at this picture, I am struck by the fact that he looks a lot like baby John David...

I'm going with gum, but his teeth are a mess. Someone in the comments asked Jill what was with Izzy's teeth. Her response was a thumbs up emoji...

Thankfully, modern orthodontia has come a long way. Instead of waiting until the teen years to do braces, some dentists are putting braces on younger children to guide their permanent teeth into position. Two of my students had this done to fix problems with teeth growing too far outward (kind of like buck teeth, but with their canines) and it has worked out fabulously for them. 

Izzy's teeth look like any kid's at his age, but if he has further issues with his permanent teeth he has many solutions to fix them (if he wants).

Izzy’s teeth don’t look great, but they aren’t his permanent teeth. He does have Jill’s annoying gummy smile though. 🦷 

That beard and shaggy hair are doing Derrick no favors.

What I don't understand about Jill's response to Josie's IG post is, what about it deserved a "yay!!"? There's nothing new or exciting that Josie was mentioning, it was literally Christmas wishes. A comment on how Josie's photo was cute, or they make an adorable couple, or that the sentiment was sweet, sure, but absolutely nothing deserved the "yay!!".

Doesn't it get cold in Arkansas in the winter? I swear, no matter what winter month it is, Izzy and Sam never have coats on. Sammy's in his footie sleeper and is probably warmer than Izzy, but unless it's 60 degrees out, they should at least have a jacket on.

I'm sure Derick was thrilled to spend a rare day off driving the barnacle over to Famy's boutique to give it some MORE free publicity. 

Was her store really open today?

Apparently Amy wasn’t at the store when the Dillards visited. Her husband was, though.

And let the pregnancy speculation begin...of course Amy would use twitter instead of a phone call to say she was sorry she wasn't there.

It looks to me like Izzy's bottom teeth are larger than his top teeth. That could be because his bottom teeth came in first, though.

You really nailed it with your post, but the one thing I would add is that snitchy little Jill is convinced she is the brightest and the best.  She is a pompous ass just like her dad and her husband.  She's convinced she does everything so perfectly, so why in the world would she need to grow or change?

 

Well, don't leave us hangin.  Is she happy?  If so, YAY!!

She licked my face after I asked her, so I’m going with Yes she is happy:).  Tomorrow is her rescuversary so we are having non beige foods for her.  Our diets begin on Han 2

OK, this is weird.  Are we still talking about Jill here?  Because I'm not sure I want to know why she's licking your face, but thanks for rescuing her, I guess.

I wonder if PART of Jill's problem is that she expects to have a family of 10+, and doesn't want to change the way she cooks for a few years before having to go back to foods that feed a crowd. Maybe she doesn't want to learn how to prepare fresh veggies when she thinks she'll have to take them away in a few years, and she wants her kids to grow up eating the same kinds of things consistently (though idk why she'd want them eating this stuff). However, she might as well give it up and make better food, because somehow I just don't see her having a huge family 

That's just WAY too much thinking for little Jilly Muffin.

Not the hashtag to use in a family with a molestation scandal.

The sushi doesn’t look half bad. I can’t fault Jill for this one. Not that I’d eat her cooking, since I doubt the handles food correctly, but she tried. Now do a veggie roll, and do so eomething with cooked meat.

 

Derick just needs to admit he hates his kids already, get some therapy, and try to be a decent father. You signed on for this life marrying into this clan, asshole. Reap what you sow. And show use those law school grades...

The sushi is the best looking thing that Jill has made. Maybe part of her problem with her other dishes (not the entire problem) is that they involved cooking or baking.

Poor Izzy looks like he’s inherited his dad’s jacked-up mouth.  I predict that Izzy will be going through the same oral surgery that Dickwad had, unless they can enlarge the palate with a newer, non-surgical method.  That poor child; as if he didn’t have enough problems already. 😢
