Can Jehovah's Witnesses Celebrate New Years?

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that celebrating the new year is a custom based on pagan traditions. Therefore they don't celebrate New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Julius Caesar, a Roman ruler founded the holiday on Jan 1 in the year 46 B.C. The holiday was in celebration of the God Janus, who was the God of gates, doors, and beginnings. Janus had two faces, - one looking forward and one looking back.

Inspirational Quote
When we were born we knew the truth. We weren't Christians, Buddhists, Jehovah's Witnesses, or atheists. All we knew was love felt good. Then someone told us their religion is just like God. We believed them for a while. But when we found out the truth we hated God and judged Him harshly for lying to us. Some of us became atheists. Then one day we stumbled upon the path to eternal life. God gave us the truth the day we were born. Love feels good. Jesus said, 'Do this and you will live'. Luke 10:25-37
