    I always think Stevie Wonder said it best:


    You know it doesn't make much sense
    There ought to be a law against

    Anyone who takes offense

    At a day in your celebration

    'Cause we all know in our minds
    That there ought to be a time
    That we can set aside
    To show just how much we love you
    And I'm sure you would agree
    It couldn't fit more perfectly
    Than to have a world party on the day you came to be
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    I just never understood
    How a man who died for good
    Could not have a day that would
    Be set aside for his recognition
    Because it should never be
    Just because some cannot see
    The dream as clear as he
    That they should make it become an illusion
    And we all know everything
    That he stood for time will bring
    For in peace our hearts will sing
    Thanks to Martin Luther King
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Why has there never been a holiday
    Where peace is celebrated
    All throughout the world
    The time is overdue
    For people like me and you
    Who know the way to truth
    Is love and unity to all God's children
    It should never be a great event
    And the whole day should be spent
    In full remembrance
    Of those who lived and died for the oneness of all people
    So let us all begin
    We know that love can win
    Let it out don't hold it in
    Sing it loud as you can
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday

    We know the key to unity all people
    Is in the dream that you had so long ago (happy birthday)
    That lives in all of the hearts of people (happy birthday)
    That believe in unity (happy birthday)
    We'll make the dream become a reality (happy birthday)
    I know we will (happy birthday)
    Because our hearts tell us so (happy birthday)
    Happy birthday
    Etc repeat

    EverApostate said, “As a JW, (brainwashed) belief that Birthdays are evil was the stupidest belief I had in all my life.”

    LongHairGal said, “Pay no attention to what the religion said (pagan nonsense) because they just want to isolate you from non-JW relatives and friends. They are afraid if you experience happiness around people who aren't judging you - you won't want the religion anymore.”

    Great observations above. When one is awake and looks back at what they believed in, it is truly astonishing at how duped we were. With the Watchtower goggles removed, the lunacy and total absurdity of JW beliefs we used to live by becomes disconcerting indeed.

    I always ask myself, “How in blazes did I fall for all this crap?”
