Christmas is celebrated differently all over the world. In the US and the UK, it is typically celebrated by decorating Christmas trees, wrapping gifts, hanging stockings for Santa Claus to fill, singing carols and feasting with family and friends.
The Jehovah’s Witness have a governing body called “the Watch Tower” that guides their religion. According to the Watch Tower, Christmas is a pagan holiday and it is not written in the Bible. With these two points, Jehovah’s Witness view Christmas as wrong.
Jehovah Witnesses do not celebrate Christmas because they believe the holiday or celebration has associations, natures or origins of paganism. They believe Christmas promotes idolatry and it is false. They usually celebrate the time when the followers of Jesus were commanded by Jesus.
