Ace tennis star, Serena Williams Will Not be celebrating her daughter’s one-year-old birthday – because she is a Jehovah’s Witness.
The mother of one who is in the habit of posting photos to social media of her family life won’t be posting any party pictures from Alexis Olympia’s special day.
She disclosed this during a press conference at the US Open when she was asked how she plans to celebrate her daughter’s special day.
“Olympia doesn’t celebrate birthdays. We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we don’t do that.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses do not celebrate religious holidays such as Christmas and Easter, and do not celebrate birthdays either. They believe that these ‘festivals’ have pagan origins.
