In 2017, it is expected that the average American will be spending $967.13 on gifts for friends and loved ones
I was thinking about how much money the org has at their disposal within their membership by simply banning Christmas.
Because JWs are notoriously cheap, I rounded way down with projected gift spending and went with a $900 figure and then rounded down the estimates of JWs to 8 million (because a lot of that number are dependent children) and came up with an amount of 72 million American dollars that will have been "liberated" from the worldly tradition of getting together with friends and family to celebrate during the long winter months.
I didn't bother putting in the $ that is spent on things other than gift giving (travelling and food, etc) just because so many JWs do that anyways over the holidays "because turkeys are on sale"
Merry Xmas everybody :)
