Festivus: A welcome relief.

Today is Festivus.  We celebrated Festivus for the first time last year.  It was a difficult time because we lost Paw on Dec. 1, and celebrating a holiday that just screamed, "Voice your frustrations!" felt right.  So instead of all that rush, bustle, and joy, we spent the evening at a bar in Algiers with some friends and dropped all thought of Christmas.  It was great.  So this year, I'm going to recommend that y'all give Festivus a shot; stop the Christmas madness and take a day to breathe.  It will do wonders for your spirit.

How to celebrate Festivus?  Go here:

I've got my unadorned aluminum pole out front and center and looking as tacky as possible. : )


  1. I love Festivus. Who knew a Seinfeld episode would make a whole new holiday.
    Are you going to have the Feats of Strength and the Airing of Grievances?

  2. Oh yes we aired our grievances, (complained about work) and the Feats of Strength are displayed by opening the olive and pickle jars. Afterwards we celebrated our success with a couple of beers. : )
