Today is Festivus! Take this day and send a free digital eCard to air your grievances as you see fit!
Festivus is a holiday that was created by writer Dan O’Keefe as a way
to celebrate the holiday season without buying into its commercialism.
Festivus was immortalized when O’Keefe’s son wrote an episode about it
for the popular TV show Seinfeld. The episode (called “The Strike”) aired on December 18, 1997.
A traditional Festivus celebration includes a plain aluminum pole in
lieu of a Christmas tree, the annual “Airing of Grievances,” the
Festivus dinner, and “Feats of Strength.” The traditional Festivus
greeting is “Happy Festivus” and the slogan of the holiday is “A
Festivus for the rest of us!”
Watch part of the famous Seinfeld episode to celebrate this quirky occasion!
Never heard of this before, never got into Seinfeld.
Happy Belated Festivus! My 1st. hearing of this one...
