The early Christians did not celebrate any holidays, and neither do JW's (true Christians) today.
For their own benefit, Jesus commanded his disciples to observe a memorial of his death, and established that memorial during the Hebrew calendar period, referred to as 'Nisan 14', at sunset.- Luke 22:14-20
This was the Passover season, which was to carry over to Jesus' disciples. The memorial of Christ's death is not the actual Passover celebration, however, since 1 Corinthians 5:7 states: "For, indeed, Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed."
No other observance is given or directed for Christians to observe, not even Christ's resurrection, which is to be observed daily, by means of Christian awareness. Jesus' birth- also a reason for rejoicing through daily awareness- was also not included in Jesus' direction.
The Memorial of Jesus' Death has not become contaminated with commercialism, greed, spiritism and various pantheons of religious celebration. And is not to be confused with the popular practice of 'communion'.
The Memorials' significance can be more-readily appreciated by obtaining a better understanding of the Passover, itself. So I will include a link that will provide information on that, below:
Also, some links to information about what do not celebrate:
As far as the normal holidays they do not celebrate any of them, they have their own holiday and the only one endorsed by the Watchtower is the death of Jesus, it is tied in to the date of the Passover, Niasan 14 on the Jewish Calendar. However they do celebrate a few personal milestones like wedding anniversaries, but not Birthdays.
I am a Jehovah witness. My name is Ayla. I am nine. BUT us witnessess know what we are doing,and the person who said he/she was 30 , well my group feels sorry for you!!! So you should stop talking MESS about us!!!
We celebrate everything that Jesus and his apostles celebrated. Isn't that what a foot step follower of Jesus would do?
The bible said other celebrations would be added after the apostles died. It would be part of the apostasy that would come.
2Tim 4:3,4 "For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories"
,but I don't know what they celebrate add me as a friend and plz remind me that way I can have the answer by tuesday
Easter is kind of celebrated but it's only the religious aspects. No Easter Bunny or chocolate eggs :')
Birthdays aren't celebrated because the only time a birthday is mentioned in the bible, John the Baptist was decapitated and his head was a birthday gift heh..
Hallowe'en isn't celebrated because of the pagan origins.
Bonfire night isn't celebrated.
Christmas isn't celebrated because by looking at the specific dates in the bible, it would logically suggest Jesus was born in October, not December.
I think I've got everything. People think it's cruel, especially to young children, to deny them these public holidays, which in a way it is, but they often have 'Present Days' which is just like Christmas but without all of the traditional stuff like a tree and whatnot. The family comes down in the morning to open gifts and stuff. Isn't too bad :')
That is just sad I am a Baptist when they come to our door we don't answer it.
