How To Celebrate Festivus- A Festivus For The Rest Of Us

According to the Seinfeld, Festivus was born on December 18th 1997. Festivus is celebrated each year on December 23rd. However, many people celebrate throughout the entire month of December. Looking to find out how to celebrate Festivus? Here’s what you’ll need. 

The Festivus Pole 


The Festivus Pole is the symbol of this anti-christmas holiday. In Seinfeld, Frank Costanza chose the aluminum pole as an opposition to the commercialization of highly decorated Christmas trees, and also because he “finds tinsel distracting.” The pole is plain looking, no branches or decorations, and it is relatively inexpensive. You can find one in your attic, or hardware store. You could order one online, but seriously why waste money?

Festivus Dinner

A celebratory dinner is needed on the evening of Festivus. The meal on the show was meat loaf, and spaghetti in a red sauce. Keep the meal simple, and keep it plain. No need to cook turkey, ham, zitti, or any of that.

After dinner, the Airing of Grievances takes place. Each participant tells friends and family at the dinner of all the instances throughout the year where they disappointed him or her.

The Feats of Strength will normally follow the Airing of Grievances. Festivus is truly not over until the head of the household is wrestled to the floor and pinned.
