Today is Festivus, a holiday made famous in an episode of the TV show, Seinfeld. In fact, the father of one of the show's writers created the holiday many years prior. To celebrate, according to the Festivus website, install a Festivus Pole (devoid of the trappings of the traditional Christmas tree). A good Festivus dinner features meat loaf or spaghetti in red sauce. Finally, practice the Airing of the Grievances and the Feats of Strength. Happy Festivus to all!
