Time again to gather round the Festivus Pole, take part in the Airing of Grievances, and prepare for the Feats of Strength. Oh happy day!
The celebration of Festivus seems to be gaining momentum with every passing year. This time The Google even got into the act, festooning their logo with a Festivus pole.
It is only a matter of time before Festivus supplants Christmas as the most-celebrated winter holiday… and then I suppose we’ll hear Fox News whining about a “War on Festivus.”
I’m not sure that “Happy” is the best adjective to pair with Festivus. I can relate better to “Frank, Honest, or Forthright” Festivus. It’s an occasion that cuts thru all the bullshit of competing winter holidays.
Happy winter solstice and associated theological holidays.
