The Festivus pole is to Festivus as the Christmas Tree is to Christmas. Want to buy a pole? According to Frank Costanza, the aluminum pole will need to have a very high strength-to-weight ratio.

Don’t decorate your Festivus pole. Decorations are distracting, so leave it plain and let people admire it’s aluminum nothingness.

Airing of Grievances

The highlight of the Festivus holiday comes during dinner when before eating, you air your grievances. This allows you the opportunity to tell others how they have disappointed you in the past year.

Yes, there is even a meal for this fake holiday. In the Seinfeld episode, The Strike – a Festivus dinner consisted of meatloaf on a bed of lettuce. Totally sounds appetizing, right? (that’s a nope from me.)

The holiday’s tagline is “A Festivus for the rest of us” which is one of the many Festivus quotes that infamous Seinfeld episode brought us. Here are more Festivus quotes to recite:

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. “The doll was destroyed. But out of that, a new holiday was born. A Festivus for the rest of us.

The tradition of Festivus begins with the airing of grievances. I got a lot of problems with you people, now you’re gonna hear about it.”

Frank Costanza

In regards to decorating the Festivus pole…

I find the tinsel distracting.
