I look forward to the wrestling with my father. He’s pretty old and I can take him.

What’s Festivus? Is that the pagan solstice celebration? Also, are you serious, or being funny? (I think we do have one or two practicing pagans in FR.)

Google it. That’s what I did, since I missed the Seinfeld episode that explained it all.

It comes from the same place a the “puffy shirt”, “beefaroni”, and the “manzier”. I leave it to you to figure out...

If you are unable, NO SOUP FOR YOU!!!!!

Festivus was a holiday invented on a episode of Seinfeld. I seriously doubt anybody seriously celebrates it so I'm guessing the poster was being funny.

Frank: It's made from aluminum. Very high strength-to-weight ratio. Kruger: I find your belief system fascinating.

The aluminum pole was apparently chosen as an opposition to the commercialization of highly decorated Christmas trees, and also because Frank Costanza, "finds tinsel distracting."

Kramer: Is there a tree?
Frank: No. Instead, there's a pole. It requires not decoration. I find tinsel distracting.

Festus? I also liked him as Torgo in Manos: The Hands of Fate.

I practiced the other day. I think I herniated a disc lifting the middle section of my kids' snowman onto the base. Then, in thanks, the little snots knocked it over the second day. Me, I'm still walking with a starboard list.

Our local sports talk show celebrated this one day early yesterday and many grievances were aired.

They called it “Festivus for the rest of us”.

BTW - LOVE your tag line. Easy Money was my favorite Rodney Dangerfield movie. Joe Pesci was great!

It actually wasn’t invented on Seinfeld. They just appropriated it.

During the past year, I have been disappointed in many ways.

But I keep coming back to FR to be re-motivated.

Now for the Feats of Strength!

Will be printing them out and passing them around at Christmas dinner. Things are just too dull at the in-laws and need some spicing up this year.

How funny now that Festivus has overtaken Kwanzaa in popularity.

I rather celebrate Festivus than Kwanzaa.. In fact I think that Kwanzaa is slowly going away..
