Today is Festivus!!

Bring out the aluminum pole, because Festivus is here! Prepare yourself to air some grievances, and get to the feats of strengths!


What IS Festivus, you ask?! Watch THIS clip from Seinfeld (1997) to find out:

“Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way. “[The doll] was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born. A Festivus for the rest of us.”

LOOK! Even Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang celebrate Festivus!

    Terrific holiday … one of the few, which actually have at least some sense. It is very refreshing, like all phenomena and events that something turn inside out! Happy festivus, Pee-wee!
