Some of you may recall this post from last year, but I really felt the need to post it again! Enjoy!
A holiday dreaded by George Castanza, it generated a frenzy of followers among the fans of the show. Retailers recognized a money-making opportunity marketing. Festivus memorabilia. There are t-shirts, signs, ornaments, Fesitvus poles--all kinds of goodies, many of which are still available on line.
The essential paraphernalia for a standard celebration is the Festivus pole--a light-weight aluminum pipe with a stand. No celebration would be complete without one.
Those who celebrate Christmas often stand the pole somewhere near their traditional Christmas tree.
Others choose to have the Festivus pole as the keynote piece of their celebration.
The Seinfeld version of the Festival included Festivus Miracles; hoever, there is some doubt (as often is the case with miracles) as to whether any actually occurred.
Some organizations actually used Festivus as a fundraising activity.
Festivus--that holiday for the rest of us! Although the original holiday did not involve the consumption of alcohol, those who so desire are welcome to imbibe--responsibly, of course!
