It’s been nearly 20 years since the television show “Seinfeld” brought us Festivus, which is a “Festivus for the rest of us.”
The brainchild of the character Frank Costanza, who “hated the commercial and religious aspects of Christmas, so he made up his own holiday.” This “holiday” is every Dec. 23 and features an aluminum pole instead of a Christmas tree and the “Airing of Grievances” and “Feats of Strength.”
It’s one of the most famous episodes of the iconic TV show, and you can tell that because of how Festivus has become part of the culture. There are quite a few sports teams that recognized that Friday is Festivus.
