Festivus Celebrated on December 23

TreeFestivus has become a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 that serves as an alternative to participating in the pressures and commercialism of the Christmas season. Originally a family tradition of scriptwriter Dan O’Keefe, who worked on the American sitcom Seinfeld, the holiday entered popular culture after it was made the focus of a 1997 episode of the program.

The holiday’s celebration, as it was shown on Seinfeld, includes a Festivus dinner, an unadorned aluminum Festivus Pole,  the “Airing of Grievances,” “Feats of Strength” and the labeling of easily explainable events as “Festivus Miracles.”
