Here Ya Go.


Had to share this cartoon, in case you hadn't seen it over on Andy's Blog.

I did see one of the houses at Winterhaven decorated with a Festivus Pole. I guess we don't want to leave out the folks that celebrate Festivus.

Here are the traditions of Festivus:
1. "Airing of Grievances", which occurs during the Festivus meal and in which each person tells everyone else all the ways they have disappointed him or her over the past year.
2. After the meal the "Feats of Strength" are performed, involving wrestling the head of the household to the floor, with the holiday ending only if the head of the household is actually pinned.
3. An aluminum pole with no decorations.

Yes, this holiday was made up by George on the Seinfeld show when he was trying to cover up for making up a charity in lieu of giving Christmas gifts to his colleagues. But, there are people who actually celebrate this now, so I think we have to make room for them at the table of comfort and being politely quiet. Don't you?

Festivus is becoming a cherished part of our holiday tradition now...I have friends all over the US who celebrate it. I'm considering starting my own line of Festivus Greeting Cards as well.

Hope you're well James!
