Happy Festivus!

For The Rest Of Us!

If you are a fan of the TV show, Seinfeld, you are probably well aware of the special meaning of December 23rd.

If not…

December 23 is when “Festivus” is “celebrated.

What is Festivus?

Well, it’s for the rest of us!

What does it include?

Three things mainly…

There is the “Festivus Pole”.

And there is the “Airing of Grievances”.

And of course, the “Feats of Strength”!

If you think things don’t always go smoothly during Festivus, you are correct!

Who is responsible for all of this?

On the show, that would be George’s father, Frank Constanza. It was Frank who informed Kramer of the “holiday” and decided to bring it back, much to the dismay of George.

In reality, the honor goes to writer, Daniel O’Keefe.

According to him, one day it just popped into his head!

Oh yeah, O’Keefe’s son, Dan, was a writer on Seinfeld.

Mystery solved!

A little trivia…

Festivus was originally “celebrated” in February. It was changed to December 23rd when written into the Seinfeld script.

By the way, the original air date of the episode was December 18, 1997.

Festivus...for the rest of us!
