Holiday Party - Festivus

Today’s Festivus (Festivus for the rest of us). This is a holiday originally created for the show Seinfeld, but has since become a popular non-denominational holiday. Here are some rules associated with Festivus:

- Instead of a Christmas tree, there is the Festivus Pole, an unadorned, aluminum pole. Decorations are strictly forbidden.
- The Festivus Feast consists of anything except ham or turkey. Dessert consists of Festivus Fruitcake, which is not eaten but is instead saved from year to year and put on display.
- Airing of Grievances - participants discuss how much others have disappointed them during the past year.
- The holiday is officially over when a holiday participant pins the head-of-the-household during a wrestling match after dinner during the Feats of Strength.

To learn more about how this holiday came to be, here is the full story of Festivus, courtesy of the Seinfeld gang.


  1. LOL. Thank you for the video.

  2. Very funny video. :) "Festivus for the rest of us" is a catchy phrase. I never did watched Seinfeld, except to see the Soup Nazi and the last Final episodes.
