Wow, I wasn't aware that there were those kinds of rules for JW's - that lifestyle must have been pretty difficult to adjust to, especially at that age.
I seem to recall having JW classmates in the past (back in elementary school). Whenever the class did anything for the holidays (such as crafts, stories and movies), they would leave the room and go do something else. I always thought it was a bummer for them to miss out on the fun stuff.
As for me, I am a Christian, and I consider my faith to be pretty important.
I don't need any justification for it.
