Festivus: Observed on December 23rd
Is the commercialism of Christmas getting you down? Are you worried that there are only a few shopping days left? Why not put down your wallet and celebrate Festivus? If you don’t know about this hilarious holiday, don’t worry. There’s not much to it! All you need is an aluminum pole, a quirky family or group of friends, and a place to wrestle. Put down your credit cards, wrapping paper, lights, and gift receipts! It’s time to celebrate Festivus (the holiday for the rest of us). We hope you’ll try this lesson in your class on December 23rd.
Kramer: Is there a tree?
Frank: No. Instead, there’s a pole. Requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting.
