A Festivus for the rest of us

Combing though the wire last night I found a funny story I posted on our website about Festivus, kind of funny I guess.

What a loon, everyone knows there are no dietary restrictions for Festivus. Come on man!

Let me break down what the holiday made famous by “Seinfeld” consists of.

First there is no tree but an undecorated aluminum pole, tinsel is distracting.

Second at the meal there is the airing of grievances where you tell all the people you love how much they have disappointed you over the past year.

The holiday closes with the feats of strength where two people wrestle and it’s not over till someone is pinned.

Here’s a video summing up the holiday.

This may sound crazy, because it is, but a lot of people follow it. So much even in 2007 the City Hall in Green Bay displayed a Festivus pole until it was removed because the city found out Festivus is not a “legitimate” holiday.

Well I will be in Jamestown for Christmas and I do think I will be having my own little Festivus with some friends.

All we are in need is a good aluminum pole with a high strength to weight ratio. Please let me know if you can help.
