Yes, just not anything with a known unscriptural root or associated customs.
Here are links from their official site [as with any religion it's always best to go to offical sites. You won't get the full truth about Jehovah's Witnesses anywhere else]:

I found this too:
"Why don’t you celebrate holidays?
We commemorate the Memorial of Christ’s death, the most important religious event of the year for Jehovah’s Witnesses. Throughout the year, we enjoy parties, picnics, and other events without feeling bound to obligations or to a fixed date. We may also celebrate special events such as weddings and anniversaries. However, we do not celebrate holidays that have non-Christian religious origins or those that promote nationalism. We are not opposed to celebrations in general or to the giving of gifts."
It's a cut and paste from their official media website http://www.jw-media.org/
