Happy Festivus!

It's December 23rd! The holiday called Festivus! 
(Festivus -- For the Rest of Us.)

Festivus is the holiday during the holiday season that does away with all the greed and commercialism of the holidays -- and it is one that I celebrate wholeheartedly. 

I've never liked putting up Christmas decorations (and never have) so when I found out that, instead of a tree, a simple aluminum pole is erected for Festivus, I jumped on board and ordered one years ago.

Here it is, gleaming in the soft glow of artificial lighting:

I put it up right after Thanksgiving and it remains there through the holidays.

Now, one would think that there would be special Festivus carols or a Festivus feast to prepare, but no. That would go completely against the spirit of this special holiday. I do have off from work today, though, and am simply eating leftovers and watching reruns on TV.

Here is a great clip from Seinfeld -- the TV series that gave birth to Festivus.

Happy Festivus, everyone!
