It’s time to air the grievances. It’s time for feats of strength. It’s time to put up your pole, discard all of that distracting tinsel and celebrate a good old-fashioned non-holiday without the burden of commercialism. That’s right, it’s a Festivus for the rest of us! Seinfeld fans rejoice by revisiting the story of of Festivus.

Festivus was first introduced to us in 1997 when it was revealed on Seinfeld that George’s father Frank invented his own holiday after a dispute in a store over a doll Frank was trying to buy for George. The doll was destroyed, “but out of that, a new holiday was born. A Festivus for the rest of us!” The “holiday” is acknowledged on December 23rd, which is today! So don’t hesitate to air your grievances, engage in “Feats of Strength” and gather around the Festivus pole.

?Here are the clips from Seinfeld that tell the story of Festivus.
