The Twelve Days of Holidays, Part III: Festivus

Posted By on Wed, Dec 5, 2007 at 11:32 AM

Come year-end, it's the time to celebrate Festivus, the non-denominational, secular celebration that most of the country discovered through a Seinfeld episode. Click the video above for a taste. Disillusioned with the commercialized frenzy that accompanies the holidays, George Costanza's dad created this yuletide alternative, and he called it Festivus. The new holiday is celebrated with a traditional meal, an aluminum pole (in place of a Christmas tree), feats of strength, and an airing of grievances. It's a "Festivus for the rest of us."
