Welcome To Plathville – last episode saw Olivia Plath and Ethan at a watch-party

The final of six episodes screened this week, and fans wonder if more seasons will follow. Interestingly, we noted that it aired on the same night as the Duggars in Counting On. Both religious and conservative, they differ in some ways. While it came with controversy and some allegations of TLC frauding the storyline, there’s a possibility of a second season. But, we need to wait for confirmation from the network.

On her Instagram Stories, Olivia said she felt a bit nervous about watching the finale of Welcome To Plathville.  After all, she said it’s a bit intimidating “watching yourself on national television.” In another story, she shared a photo and tagged herself, Micah, and Ethan in it. That picture showed them all after the episode and they all looked rather happy about how it went. But something else rather interesting emerged. She said that Ethan never celebrated holidays when he was growing up.

Ethan, Christmas holidays, and celebrations this year

TLC fans know that while the Duggars don’t celebrate everything the same as most people at Christmas, they do celebrate. Cheatsheet noted, “the Duggars do not buy a Christmas tree for the festive holiday.” But, they make up big banners and celebrate it as the birthday of Christ. They do not believe in Santa, so no large gifts get exchanged, but nevertheless, they do give small gifts and start their Jesus birthday celebrations after Thanksgiving. It’s a festive time for the family.

But, for the Plath kids, they simply don’t seem to celebrate it at all. TLC fans who watched the new Welcome To Plathville show know the kids live under strict rules. No sugar, no soda, no television, and more. But, one would expect a religious family to celebrate something during the festive season. But, it seems they don’t according to Olivia. Olivia said this year, they still try and figure out how to celebrate and it looks like it will be Ethan’s first time.
