Happy Festivus! and What is Festivus?


     The writer of Seinfeld, Dan O'Keefe,  celebrated "Festivus" with his family growing up.  It was a new holiday tradition that his father made up after reading about a Festivus holiday in a book.  It was a crazy, silly holiday with unique traditions that later became a Seinfeld episode.  
     Today, Festivus is actually celebrated by hundreds of thousands.  It has grown into a non-denominational fun holiday.  Some stay true to the Seinfeld episode and carry out their actual traditions, others just do bits and parts.  For most, I believe it's just a silly, crazy,fun way to celebrate the season.  So, Happy Festivus to all!!
