    Happy Festivus
    Festivus is an annual holiday that originated in ancient Rome, and was made popular by Reader's Digest writer and editor Daniel O'Keefe. The holiday includes novel practices such as the "Airing of Grievances", in which each person tells everyone else all the ways they have disappointed him/her over the past year. Also, after the Festivus meal, the "Feats of Strength" are performed, involving wrestling the head of the household to the floor, the holiday only ending if the head of the household is actually pinned.

    I thought it wasn't until the 23rd. That is when we celebrate it.

    Did the ancient Romans make their Festivus poles out of the traditional aluminum?
