Happy Festivus!

You Seinfeld fans probably remember the made-up holiday "for the rest of us": Festivus. For everyone else: hey, did you know there's a made-up holiday tomorrow called Festivus? 'Cuz there is. And folks celebrate it, too.


So, apparently bakers figured, hey, if you can't beat 'em...

...misspell their Festivus cakes.


A good Festivus has a few key components. After you've erected the Festivus pole (an aluminum pole used in place of a Christmas tree) and had the Festivus dinner, you then move on to the traditional Airing of Grievances. This is when you tell each family member how s/he has disappointed you in the last year:
"Dude! Not cool! I told you that in confidence!"

"What? That was a gift!"


Which can also be a time of really opening up to your parents:

So as you can see, the Airing of Grievances is a lot like your average family reunion.
Finally, you wrap up the day's celebration with the traditional "Feats of Strength."
Wow. That's one disarmingly flexible cake.
This is when the head of the household selects one family member to wrestle, since tradition states that Festivus is not over until the head of the household is pinned.
Of course, you can always count on someone to take tradition a little too far.



Well, Happy Festivus, Heidi B., Becky L., Wendy B., Rebecca B., & Lynn G.! Oh, and if you're not buying this, just read the Festivus book; it's all in there.
