The card also features the greeting "Merry CHRISTmas From the Duggar Family," as well as a quote from scripture: "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Last year, Michelle explained on her TLC blog that she and Jim Bob try very hard to keep their kids focused "on the real meaning of Christmas," and not on Santa or presents or any of the other more commercial aspects of the holiday.

"It was Christ's day, the holy day of mass, Christ mass, and what we're celebrating is the day that Christ was born," she wrote. "We explained that to them from the beginning and how it is a huge celebration. We really make it a big deal…It's an exciting time. We decorate. It's a big birthday party for Jesus."
