Festivus for the Rest of Us

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.
