It should come as no surprise that the Duggars love Christmas.
After all, the holiday combines several of their favorite thing–religious pageantry, displays of wealth disguised as acts of generosity, and of course, unabashedly gaudy home decor.
Now, many fans believe Jinger has found a way to combine Christmas with her family’s very favorite thing:
We’re talking, of course, about procreation.
It’s been over a year since Jinger married Jeremy Vuolo in front of a couple thousand of their closest friends.
Generally, Duggar weddings are followed soon after by pregnancy announcements, but that hasn’t been the case with the Vuolos.
Some fans are basically going through the five stages of grief over the fact that Jinger and Jeremy seem to be holding off on starting a family, but they’re having a hard time making it to “acceptance.”
So they continue to look for subtle hints of a pregnancy in everything Jinger does, even though subtlety has never been her family’s strong suit.
Some of these people have become so desperate that they’ve started looking for clues in Jinger’s holiday decorations.
“Couldn’t wait…went ahead and pulled out the Christmas decor a bit early this year!” Jinger captioned the above photo.
Possibly missing the fact that the message on the wreath references a Bible quote, several fans began spreading the word that this is Jinger’s way of revealing that she’s with child.
“I’m reading her wreath, [and] I thought she was pregnant,” wrote one follower.
“Too early for Christmas decorations.”
Others were a bit more reasonable:
“Highly doubt this is a pregnancy announcement. Christmas is about celebrating Jesus being born,” commented another fan.
“Hence the reason it says ‘for unto us a child is born.’ It’s a verse. Talking about Jesus being born. Way to assume guys!”
All that scrutiny, and no one had anything to say about the unnecessary apostrophe on “the Vuolo’s.” Sigh.
Anyway, it seems the most logical explanation is that Jinger’s wreath is referring to the birth of Jesus, but as is so often the case in life, the most logical explanation is also the most boring.
So let’s all continue to read way too much into the Vuolos’ holiday decor!
We can’t wait to dissect Jinger and Jeremy’s Christmas tree for signs that they’re having twins!
