what religion/cult is she from do you think? I've never heard of that one before.
to the best of my knowledge I've not had a great deal of exposure to the teachings of Jehovah, nor do I have a great desire to understand it. Plus my RE teacher was shit.
but i've still encountered loads of people in life who don't celebrate birthdays, be they atheist, religious, cultish or whatever
it's not an uncommon trope, not where i grew up, not in london bubble. idk
never heard of thee guys before. new life goal: get excluded from the exclusive brethren.
i think they're a bit like jehovas witnesses, sort of culty christianity. you can't join tho, you have to be born into it. they all look the same, its quite sad, as they all inter marry. both the girls in my class (cousins) were deaf as a result. they went allowed to watch TV or do P.E.
doesn't the guy from Son Of Rambow belong to The Brethren?
they had to leave school when they were 15 or something.
she just doesnt want to celebrate it with you
she only says hello to me when I say hello to her but when she does it she doesn't look at me. I think she might be a robot.
I just don't like celebrating my birthday.
I like celebrating other peoples, but not my own.
Does that count?
but Jehovah's Witnesses are certainly one faith that don't celebrate birthdays
they must all be really upset.
Just didn't enjoy it. I do now though.
..does that mean life is fun again?
They don't celebrate that stuff. Mainly because they're fucking mentalists.
Like all religious people.
who wasn't allowed to eat in front of anyone who wasn't of the same faith. So we always made excuses to go into his office every lunchtime.
that's The Brethren too isn't it?
i seem to remember they all had lunch together in a room and not in the dining hall.
his genes were definitely not of the highest quality it must be said.
A family of brethen lived down the road from me. There's a fair few around here for some reason. I know there entertainment was gathering around the piano. And I seem to remember that their church services started at some ungodly hour
the easiest assassination victim ever.
Bring cakes and cards and everything
can anyone confirm????
I had a friend who was one and he never got any birthday presents, he just got bought stuff when he wanted it.
confirmation is more of a CofE or Catholic thing
I don't think jehvoah's witnesses celebrate their birthday either.
No-one pays attention to what I say
I'VE ONLY BEEN HERE SEVEN FUCKING YEARS
Fuck you all. No really, FUCK OFF.
Not really. I just wanted to make this little bit of the thread about me.
CAN EVERYONE STOP SAYING "JEHOVAH ('S WITNESSES"?!
right. gonna read the thread now.
Simply, it's when the shame of being a year closer to middle age outweight the need for more socks and Lynx Africa.
It's a bigger anticlimax than New Year's Eve, coupled with the reminder that you're now a little bit older than you wanted to be when you achieved all those things you were meant to achieve. I just get drunk alone in my room and wait for it to pass.
it was, by far, better than most birthday parties I've been to.
you miserable sod
JEHOVAH WITNESSES DON'T.
Just mail me my prize.
a Jehovah's Witness
birthday. I hate all the pointless congratulations etc. No one gives a fuck.
with a Jehovah's Witness. He had to leave the classroom whenever we had any sort of holiday or birthday celebration. :(
Don't listen to people who say otherwise.
But they really don't.
