Festivus a Holiday for the Rest of Us…

We've been celebrating Festivus for a few years now.  If you don't know what Festivus is…

#4 and #5 getting ready to challenge the head of household in feats of strength.

Festivus is a holiday celebrated on December 23 as an alternative to participating in the pressures of  the holidays.   Festivus became part of popular culture after being featured on an episode of  Seinfeld in 1997.  The holiday's celebration, as it was shown on Seinfeld, included a Festivus dinner, an unadorned  "Festivus pole," practices such as the "Airing of Grievances" and "Feats of Strength", and the labeling of easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles."  We pretty much celebrate it just to have fun with the kids… and so I can hear The Man say at dinner, "I have a real problem with you people!"

Here's #5 challenging his father..

It's not looking good for the boys in the "feats of strength"


#4 looks like he's going to pounce!

It looks like he's going down!


The Man is bring out some old Hulk Hogan wrestling spin.

It appears.. The Head of Household won again this year!  It's a Festivus Miracle!

In Honor of Festivus…

I love Seinfeld. I never watched it much when it was on regular TV… but we watch it every night now. If you are a Seinfeld fan, you'll know that yesterday December 23.. was Festivus….

Homemade pizza

Festivus starts with a non-holiday comfort food.

We chose pizza. I made 4 different pizzas. We had Canadian bacon,

a thin all meat, pepperoni.. and a deep dish all meat with sweet

onions on top. After or during the meal there is the "airing of

grievances". This is where each person tells everyone else

all the ways they have disappointed them over the past year.

After the non-traditional meal, there is the "Feats of Strength". This is where

people challenge the head of household in a wrestling match. It ends when

the head of the household is pinned. You can get out of challenging the

head of household ..if you have something better to do.

The only people that would challenge the head of household

this year was #4 and #5. It didn't go so well for them. The

head of household was not pinned… It was a FESTIVUS MIRACLE!
