Happy Festivus

Many Christmases ago, Frank Costanza went to buy a doll for George (UB thought they were all Jewish...).There was only one doll left and as he reached for it, so did another man. After struggling for the doll, he thought there could be another way. The doll was destroyed, but out of that, a new holiday was born. It was called Festivus. A Festivus for the Rest of Us.

The holiday is on December 23rd. Rather than have a tree, the symbol of choice is an aluminum pole that requires no decoration.

Frank: I find tinsel distracting.

During Festivus dinner first comes "The Airing of Grievances" where you tell the family all the ways they have disappointed you over the last year.

Next is the Feats of Strength where the head of the family tests his strength against another friend or family member. Cosmo Kramer was given the honor but turned it down to George Costanza. Festivus is not over until the head of the family is pinned.
