Jehovah's Witnesses don't celebrate Thanksgiving. Instead, members of the religious sect take the day to increase their door-to-door evangelism.
Jehovah's Witnesses go door to door to people's homes because they believe this method of making disciples is the model Jesus gave the church (Matthew 10:7, 11-13) as well as the example of first-century Christians who spread the Gospel by going "from house to house" (Acts 5:42, 20:20).

Jehovahs witnesses are unpaid and do not receive compensation for work at any level. They have unpaid elders and even those who serve fulltime in foreign lands or at the Headquarters receive only a basic very small allowance to assist them with living expenses.
If they do come to the door, don't talk with them. Give them a polite “I'm not interested” and then go into broken record mode and repeat it until they give up. Do not answer their questions, do no engage in conversation. Shut them down 100% and don't talk to them.
The Jehovah's Witnesses are an outgrowth of the International Bible Students Association, which was founded in 1872 in Pittsburgh by Charles Taze Russell.
Growing Up Jehovah's Witness: 'Higher Education Is Spiritually Dangerous' When it comes to education, not all religions are created equal. Jehovah's Witnesses have the lowest rate of formal education. And that can have a detrimental effect on those who leave the religion.
Just tell them “I am not interested.” Very easy. They are looking for ones who would like to engage in Bible discussion. Those who would like to know about what the Bible says about Jehovah God and his plans for the earth and mankind. No no need to be rude.
Preachers (Elders) in the Jehovah's Witnesses Congregations are not paid. They work for the Congregation, giving public talks, performing marriages, giving funeral talks, counseling the flock, encouraging the weak, visiting the sick all for free.
The Worldwide preaching of God's Kingdom, by Jehovah's witnesses, is supported financially by VOLUNTARY donations. We do not solicit donations. When people ask how our work is financed, we explain that it is via voluntary donations.
Their beliefs are based solely upon the Bible. Jehovah's Witnesses believe that only 144,000 people will go to heavenRev 7:1-17,Rev 14:1 and that all the other people who obey God will live forever on a paradise Earth. They do not believe that God is a Trinity.
70,000 Jehovah's WitnessesAn estimated 70,000 Jehovah's Witnesses are disfellowshipped every year — roughly 1% of the church's total population, according to data published by the Watchtower.
Jehovah's Witnesses identify as Christians, but their beliefs are different from other Christians in some ways. And most Jehovah's Witnesses (83%) say their religion is the one true faith leading to eternal life, only about three-in-ten U.S. Christians (29%) believe this about their own religious faith.
the WatchtowerJehovah Witnesses do not worship symbols, the only symbol associated with this religious branch is the Watchtower, which is only used for identification. The watchtower signifies remaining observant for acts of God fulfilling prophetic beliefs.
Yes. No. Strictly speaking, there is no rule or command that forbids Jehovah's Witnesses to have non-Witness friends. However, having close relationships with 'worldly people' (as all non-Witnesses are called) is very strongly discouraged.
Just politely tell the Jehovah's witness that you're not interested. Thank them for their time and move on about your business. Jehovah's witnesses are not going to stand there and try to convince a person who isn't interested.
Jehovah's Witnesses fund their activities, such as publishing, constructing and operating facilities, evangelism, and disaster relief via donations. There is no tithing or collection, but all are encouraged to donate to the organization.
“What do Jehovah Witness call their pastor? Jehovah's Witnesses use the term traveling overseer to refer to headquarters representatives and circuit overseers, all of whom are elders. All traveling overseers are directly appointed by the Governing Body.”
