    Are english children suffering because we don't celebrate thanksgiving?

    anyone brave enough to answer this?

    This is not a valid comparison. My JW children did not "miss" celebrating other nations holidays because no one around them was. But Christmas, Easter and New Years are holidays celbrated by many nations and these are the ones that cause most JW youth to feel they are missing out. The onlt JW kids who suffer because they did/do not celebrate Thanksgiving are JW's in the U.S.

    Jesus celebrated chanukah, but if any JW did, he would be called before the elders about why he is participating in a "worldy" holiday.

    Very much so, I missed them a lot. Having to go stand in the hall or sit in the office while the birthday parties went on... Feeling like a freak all the damn time... Yeah, yeah I did.

    In answer to reinas question did the jews miss the celebrations around them in egypt. I would say clearly they did! As soon as moses turned his back they started doing them didn't they! lol

    "I'm a born-in who wanted to do it all: Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving (on the right day), Easter, Birthdays, etc etc. There was nothing to filled the void."

    This is exactly why Edmond Gruss entitled his book "The Apostles of Denial" They take everything away replacing it with nothing worth while.

    If you are referring to the Apostles of Denial, yes. If you can find it.

    The answers given on this thread should be saved and shown to anyone thinking of becoming a JW. It might help them realize the harm they would be doing to their children if they joined that religion.
