Festivus 2021 - December 19th
Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 21st. It was created by writer Dan O'Keefe and introduced into popular culture by his son Daniel, a scriptwriter for the TV show Seinfeld as part of a comical storyline on the show. The holiday's celebration, as shown on "Seinfeld", includes a "Festivus pole", practices such as the "Feats of Strength" and the "Airing of Grievances", and the labeling of easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles". Celebrants of the holiday sometimes refer to it as "Festivus for the rest of us", a saying taken from the O'Keefe family traditions and popularized in the "Seinfeld" episode.
Now you know how and why.... the where is at Shell Point Beach on December 19th, anytime after 3pm. Come out and show your feats of strength or air your grievances.
