They were very lenient JWs, then. We had neighbours who were, and they
had lots of parties, but they couldn't have a party for any *reason*,
only ever because they felt like it. Celebrating anything in particular
was right out. Their kids weren't even allowed to come and have a piece
of cake on our kids' birthdays (though it was all right for us to feed
them cake otherwise).
