Festivus

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!

When I saw this title, I immediately thought about Seinfeld. Well, George's dad I should say.
