Came across this today. In the interest of spreading holiday cheer, thought I'd pass it along...

Festivus, the holiday for the rest of us, is celebrated each year on December 23, but many people celebrate it other times, often in early December.

Its slogan is "A Festivus for the rest of us!".

An aluminum pole is generally used in lieu of a Christmas tree or other holiday decoration. Those attending participate in the "Airing of Grievances" which is an opportunity for all to vent their hostilities toward each other, and after a Festivus dinner, The Feats of Strength are performed. Traditionally, Festivus is not over until the head of the household is wrestled to the floor and "pinned".
