It’s December 23rd and while for some this day means crunch time for Christmas shopping (I am so glad the mall is open until 11pm), the day you need to make a few dozen cookies that you will never get a chance to eat, the day of your fantasy football finals, and/or the last day to try to make amends with Santa before he finalizes “The List’” for many of us in the Seinfeld generation, it means all of that and so much more.
My friends, today is Festivus. A day for airing grievances; A day for proving you are physically stronger than your loved ones; A day to celebrate around a metal pole.
In case you are hearing about this Festivus thing and want to learn about it, here is a little montage that should shed a bit more light on the “holiday.”
Happy Festivus everyone and good luck with everything else!
