  1. Consider three important questions regarding Jehovah’s Witnesses and holidays. Source
  2. James Thomas Rook Jr.

    What's wrong with THIS?

    Today is November 18, 2017. In about five days or so many in the United States will celebrate a National Day of Thanksgiving, and many of Jehovah's Witnesses will not. WHY? Below is the complete text of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving day proclamation. Please read it carefully, and tell me ... What's wrong with THIS? ...................................................................................... Washington, D.C. October 3, 1863 By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation. The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth. By the President: Abraham Lincoln William H. Seward, Secretary of State ....................................................... I cannot find anything wrong with this ... nothing at all. Do you see something that a sane, rational person should be seeing that I do NOT see? .

  4. Festivus - The Holiday for the REST of us ? "Seinfeld" was a very popular TV show a few years back, and one of the comedic sketches they had was the ad-hoc invention of a holiday called "Festivus" - completely made up out of thin air, to compete with those who did not celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah , or other holidays. I have seriously (Hahahahaha) been thinking about making "Festivus" a family tradition at our house, as exemplified by the expression " .. A life without celebration, is like a very long road without an Inn ..". If this is new to you, you can watch Seinfeld "Festivus" episodes on YouTube to get the idea, and Wikipedia has the full history of the Holiday. Hmmmm ... I will also send this question to the "Watchtower", "Questions from Readers", perhaps as an exercise in futility .. but even a blind pig finds an acorn, once in awhile. I would appreciate it if you could answer the question as you see it, from whatever perspective you have.
  5. Can someone give me a good reason why JW's do not "celebrate" Father's Day like the rest of the Americans in the USA? Is there any biblical reason NOT to celebrate such a holiday?
  6. HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY!!! If the rat can see his shadow when he emerges from his lair, (he's having coffee, now, and he sometimes enjoys 60+ cups) he releases his promised e-book 'No Fake News but Plenty of Hogwash.' If he doesn't see it, he tries to pawn off his old book, which everybody is getting pretty sick of by now, 'Tom Irregardless and Me. bit.ly/2hjSMHE It's too soon to tell. The day is cloudy, not a fair test.
  7. Remember: There are only 12 shopping days left till #GroundHogDay! Don't face last minute rush and have to learn the hard way. Tom Harley loves this day.
