    FRANK: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had - but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way!

    Festivus Information:

    Celebrated December 23rd each year.
    The Meal: What ever you want

    During the last few weeks in December when Festivus takes place, families and friends get together at the dinner table and have something called "the Airing of Grievances". During this time, we share with family and friends all the ways they had disappointed over the past year.

    After the Airing of Grievances, we get together right in the same night to do something called "Feats of Strength". This is where the head of the household tests his/her strength with another friend or family member. The great honour is given out to a different person each year.

    Now for the pole. No it is not a tree. A pole, no decorations. Tinsel is very distracting so there are no decorations. The pole is tall, silver, hollow, long, skinny, and heavy.
