Only three days until Festivus! I hope you have all found your alumninum poles in the crawlspace under your house.
There has been a lot of turmoil this year around the country and the world. I am anticipating some serious ramifications from the Airing of Grievances.
Holiday of the Day: Happy Festivus! Air your grievances.[indiecred.]
Be sure to pick up your aluminum Festivus Pole:
- Cosmo Kramer: And is there a tree?
- Frank Costanza: No, instead, there’s a pole. It requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting.
- Frank Costanza: It’s made from aluminum. Very high strength-to-weight ratio.

In the venerable Sunday NY Times, there was a classic article about Festivus, the “alternate” holiday created by Frank Costanza (Jerry Stiller) of Seinfeld fame. The great irony of the story is that Festivus is actually the brainchild of the father of one of the Seinfeld writers. More amazing, Festivus is gaining popularity as a reason for people to have alternate holiday parties. Feats of strength.
