Important dates and holidays
One of the more well-known practices of the Jehovah's Witnesses is their non-celebration of holidays. All holidays, including birthdays, are considered "pagan holidays" and may not be observed by Witnesses.
Important People and/or Famous People
This religion is called Jehovah's Witnesses.
In a way Charles Taze Russell was a reason why there's Jehovah's Witnesses.
Technically, Jehovah's Witnesses started after Charles Russell died.
Charles Taze Russell was a early 20th century Christian minister from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and founder of what is now known as the Bible Student movement, from which Jehovah's Witnesses and numerous Bible Student groups emerged after his death.
In the old days, they used these cars to announce the religion as preachers.
(February 16, 1852- October 31, 1916)
But this is only when the religion was starting to be founded, the religion began thousands of years ago if you mean when it originated. The origins of Jehovah's Witnesses began literally when god created the first man and first woman, Adam and Eve, when they sinned against god by disobeying him and listening to the "serpent", Satan, everyone sinned, but now Jesus, the son of god sent down through Mary was the ransom sacrifice made by god so that we can live in paradise or even in heaven once Armageddon passes by ending all crime, war, violence, and ALL things bad, etc as I said earlier!
this is all foretold in their bible!
the origin's of J.W go way "deeper"
other beliefs are
one of the important people in every kingdom hall are the elders who are more wise and have more knowledge on the subjects talked about in meetings and studies.

M.J's mother is still a Jehovah's Witness
Jehovah's Witnesses disagree with the mainstream Christian belief that Jesus was "fully God, fully man." Witnesses teach that Jesus was not God, but rather one of God's first creations.
Witnesses rely on the authority of the Bible, worship only one God, and trust in Jesus' death and resurrection for salvation
there are many beliefs
Some other beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses differ from mainstream Christianity, most notably their rejection of the doctrine of the Trinity and the existence of Hell. Witnesses also have stronger apocalyptic expectations than most Christians - since the founding of the group, Witnesses have been expecting the imminent arrival of Armageddon and the end of times.
Their one and only god is JEHOVAH.
The Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses is the ruling council of Jehovah's Witnesses based in Brooklyn, New York. The body assumes responsibility for formulating policy and doctrines, producing material for publications and conventions, and administering its worldwide branch office staff.] Members of the Governing Body say they are followers of Christ rather than religious leaders.[ They are also very important people.
You don't get elected for stuff like this but INSTEAD you have to be more experienced.

Rejection of Holidays
But we may celebrate special events such as weddings and anniversaries. We are not opposed to celebrations in general or to the giving of gifts.
