December 23 marks the day when grievances are aired, Feats of Strength are tested, and a shiny aluminum pole sits upward in the living room to bring everyone together.
Of course, we’re talking about the fictional holiday of Festivus, made popular on the longtime running sitcom, “Seinfeld.” While it may be a made up holiday, thousands celebrate it each year to carry on Frank Costanza’s family tradition.
There’s nothing like quite gathering the family around a cold piece of pipe to tell them all the ways they have disappointed you this year.
Twitter users seem to be taking full advantage of Festivus, sharing their own ways to mark the faux holiday.
How a few Winnipeggers are celebrating…
@ChrisDca Everyday is Festivus in my family. Right down to the airing of grievances and the feats of strength.
