Festivus Festivus Pole Type Seasonal Significance A holiday celebrated by those frustrated with the commercialism and pressure of the other December holidays. Date December 23 Celebrations Airing of Grievances, Feats of Strength, the aluminum pole, Festivus dinner, Festivus miracles Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as an alternative to participating in the pressures and commercialism of Christmas.[1] Festivus became part of worldwide[2] popular culture after being featured on an episode of the American TV show Seinfeld in 1997.[1][3] Festivus was conceived by writer Dan O'Keefe and was celebrated by his family as early as 1966. The holiday was later introduced into popular culture by O'Keefe's screenwriter son Daniel on an episode of Seinfeld. The holiday's celebration, as it was shown on Seinfeld, included a Festivus dinner, an unadorned aluminum "Festivus pole," practices such as the "Airing of Grievances" and "Feats of Strength"," and the labeling of easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles." Celebrants of the holiday sometimes refer to it as "a Festivus for the rest of us," a saying taken from the O'Keefe family traditions and popularized in the Seinfeld episode to describe Festivus' non-commercial aspect. It has also been described as a parody and as playful consumer resistance. http://www.facebook.com/events/554260197935989 HAPPY FESTIVUS!! 1.99 1/3# Hamburgers Dinner or anytime during open hours today only.
