It's Festivus - For The Rest Of Us!!

This Special Day came to the attention of most of us, as a direct result of an episode of the Jerry Seinfeld TV show.  That episode first aired December 18th, 1997.

To celebrate Festivus, you don't need a tree, but rather an unadorned aluminum pole.  Of course, there is the Festivus dinner with the suggested main course of meatloaf.  After dinner it's the ever popular "Feats of Strength".  No Festivus celebration would be complete without the, "Airing of Grievances", where you can tell someone how disappointed you are for something they did or did not do during this past year.

There you have it!  Everything you need to know to make it a "Happy Festivus"

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
