Not Everyone Celebrating Christmas- Why Not?


December 26, 2020

NEW ORLEANS, La. -- For the first time in more than 60 years, Disneyland closed it's doors on Christmas Day this year. The winter surge of the pandemic has filled ICUs nearly to capacity across much of California, prompting Governor Gavin Newsom to issue a stay-at-home order for most of the state, including Orange County, home to Disneyland.

However, not celebrating Christmas is nothing new for millions of Jehovah's Witnesses across the globe. That is one thing that has not changed about the Christian organization this year while many other things have amid the global COVID-19 pandemic. 

Since the onset of the pandemic, Kingdom Hall's across the city, nation and world have remained closed, bi-weekly congregation meetings and conventions have been moved to zoom and door-to-door and public witnessing has ceased. 

In an in depth interview, WTDN correspondent Casey Ferrand spoke to Robert Hendricks the U.S. Spokesman of Jehovah's Witnesses. Hendricks answered questions about why Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate Christmas and how have they continued to minister without door-to-door witnessing. They also discussed a global campaign effort to offer encouragement by sharing information with public officials and others about God's Kingdom.
