@HiddenPimo, Happy 42 and congratulations. Hope that you have a wonderful celebration and I am happy to see that you chose to celebrate.
I know that Jehovah Witnesses do not celebrate birthdays. However, I don’t see anything wrong with a person being acknowledged on the day that they were born.
The way that I see it is, if you feel that birthday celebrations are wrong, then don’t participate in them. However, for those who choose to celebrate birthdays, let them be.
Recently, at a Watchtower meeting, my bible study conductor made a comment. She stated that we live in a very selfish world where we celebrate the day that we were born but we actually had nothing to do with our birth. I just listened and smiled. That was all that I could do. I was in an environment where I could not express my opinions and I completely disagreed with her.
