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.

Why Jehovah's Witnesses Don't Celebrate Holidays.

Inspirational Quote
Jesus taught us about God's love because the old Mosaic law had limitations. Likewise today, 'correct' religious beliefs and the observance of rules can't save us. We are saved by God's grace. The Bible says, 'I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!' Galatians 2:21
