Festivus - It's for the Rest of Us!
Date When Celebrated : December 23 rd
Are you feeling a little left out!? You don't celebrate Christmas or Chanukah. Kwanzaa just isn't your thing. And, you don't even know what Ramadan is.
Then, come and experience the joy and the Miracle of Festivus. One might say that the Festivus holiday is a miracle in itself.
Still not sure if Festivus is for you? It's non-denominational. So, everyone can partake. The Festivus slogan is "A Festivus for the rest of us!" And, that means you, too. So...........
Happy Festivus for the Restivus!
The Origin of Festivus Holiday:
Festivus came into being as the direct result of a Jerry Seinfeld television show episode. It first aired on December 18, 1997. The holiday was promoted by Kramer (who else!?)
The Festivus holiday was created by Seinfeld show scriptwriter Daniel O'Keefe. His dad, also named Daniel, had found reference to an obscure holiday called Festivus, which was first celebrated in 1966.
No, there isn't a Festivus Tree. Rather, an unadorned aluminum pole is the symbol of Festivus.
The Festivus holiday is celebrated with a dinner. Meatloaf is the suggested main course (I betcha can't wait for a slice of that!).
Dinner is followed by a "Feats of Strength".
Another popular Festivus tradition, is an "Airing of Grievances" . This is where you can tell someone how disappointed you are over what they did or didn't do during the past year.
