Anyone want to help me with this? What I'm looking for specifically is things that are "pagan" in the sense they predate Christianity (or I guess Judiasm to cover the ole mosaic code), that JW's allow or do. the ones that come to mind are below.
Rings - Rings seem to originate in Egypt. For wedding ceremonies it became a symbol of "ownership" in Rome.
Pinatas - Looks like possibly it originated in China as a part of the new year and a request for luck, and Catholics later turned it into a beating of temptation type thing.
(I would have added human sacrifice, but specifically I am using this to be able to point out specific inconsistencies and that argument may not be appreciated by my audience)
