As a side note, since this Scripture mentions it, where is the evidence that the “lawless one” was defeated by the allegedly invisible Christ in 1914?
Their claim that Satan was thrown out of heaven to wreck havoc on the earth does not indicate that he was “brought to nothing,” so this could not be Satan, as they claim.

Instead, Jehovah’s Witnesses celebrate milestones like anniversaries and graduations.
