‘Teen Mom 2’-star Kailyn Lowry recently revealed that she does not celebrate Christmas with her children and chooses not to purchase gifts for them either. In an Instagram Q&A session Kailyn was asked if she buys gifts for her dogs to which she replied, “I don’t even get my kids Christmas presents.” This quickly brought a lot of negative attention to Kailyn’s inbox with outraged fans asking her why on Earth she doesn’t buy her children presents for Christmas!
It has been briefly covered on the show that Kailyn doesn’t celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday. The only family members Kailyn has any contact with (according to scenes from the show) live in Texas. So, it has never seemed to be a priority for her, but now that she has four children you would think she would go all out with decorations and creating holiday traditions with her kids. Unfortunately having three baby daddies complicates things to the point that she doesn’t bother with the holiday at all.
“I’ve gone over this so many times but, I got tired of fighting with the dads about Christmas and gave it up,” Kailyn explained. “Every time I got the kids for Christmas my other family members were on opposite years with their families/kids and we started doing big vacations about 5 years ago. So, Christmas can be with their dads, and they don’t have to worry about splitting it. They look forward to our family vacation every year.“
Kail chooses to not celebrate Christmas even on another day when she can be with all of her kids at once. “Some of you are curious and some of you are really upset about this. Just know my kids are not going without. Let them have something they only do at their dads.“
Last year Kailyn opened up about this on her podcast, Coffee Convos with Lindsie Chrisley. “It is kind of sad, and I get that. I definitely get that… I just feel like it’s a lot. And the amount of money that I was spending on Christmas gifts and then I was only getting them for half the day and then I had to share.“
