So WHY is celebrating Mother's Day wrong according to Witnesses?
Is it not an opportunity to show respect to the giver of life (mother) and therefore God, the originator of families?
Does it not give an opportunity for members of the family to give a hard working mother a day off? Perhaps treating her?
The reasons used for its avoidance?
"Because of its origins...etc..."
"It gives undue attention to one person, thus promoting pride... etc"
"It wasn't celebrated by ancient worshipers... etc..."
But by those sort of reasonings, EVERYTHING with a dubious origin should be avoided right?
