Christmas's ago, Frank Costanza went to buy a doll for George.
There was only one doll left and when he reached for it, so did
another man. After struggling for the doll, he thought there could
be another way. The doll was destroyed, but out of that, a new
holiday was born. It was called Festivus. A Festivus for the rest-iv-us..
December 23rd each year.
What ever you want
the last few weeks in December when Festivus takes place, families
and friends get together at the dinner table and have something
called "the Airing of Grievances". Durning this time,
we share with family and friends all the ways they had disappointed
over the past year.
After the Airing
of Grievances, we get together right in the same night to do something
called "Feats of Strength". This is where the head of
the household tests his/her strength with another friend or family
member. The great honour is given out to a different person each
year. In Seinfeld, Cosmo Kramer was given the honor but
turned it down to George Costanza as he had an appointment.
Now for the pole. No it is not a tree. It is not a tinsel-strewn, tall, prelit artificial Christmas tree, or a flocked and decorated Douglas fir. It is a pole, no decorations. Frank Costanza believes that tinsel is very distracting so there are no decorations. The pole is tall, silver, hollow, long, skinny, and heavy.
