December 23rd Festivus

If you don’t celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa or Ramadan there is still one holiday you can still celebrate, it was created by Daniel O’Keefe (A writer on the Seinfeld show) on December 18, 1997 for the character Kramer, it’s Festivus. No, it doesn’t really stand for anything for those who don’t really believe in anything. It is symbolized by an aluminum pole with no other decorations on it, meatloaf as a dinner meal and a feat of strength after the meal. I suppose there are those that celebrate Festivus even though it doesn’t really exist. Even the date is wrong, it should be December 18th, not December 23rd. But does it matter? The clear answer is, no.
