The Best Holiday!

There must be a better way. And, out of that, a new holiday was born. A FESTIVUS, FOR THE REST OF US!"
Frank Costanza, SEINFELD


Today is truly a day to celebrate! Today, December 23rd, is Festivus! This holiday was created as an alternative to the traditional Christmas Holiday because Christmas has become to commercial. There are some things that you will need to know to really be able to truly understand and celebrate this amazing holiday!

Official symbol of the holiday: An 8' tall aluminum pole. Much cheaper than a Christmas tree with all the trimmings!

Official meal of the holiday: Spaghetti. Have you seen the prices of turkey and Ham?

Official holiday traditions:

  • The airing of greivances. Tell people what you really think of them. Let your anger out. You will feel better! Your mind will be clear for the new year ahead!
  • The feats of strength. Wrestle your dad or maybe that brother in law that really drives you nuts or fight that old woman that bags your groceries and always puts the canned peas on top of the eggs! Prove who is stronger and they will remember that lesson all year long!

You can probably tell that this is a holiday that really does not have much merit but it may someday! Think about how good you will feel after celebrating this! Well, have a happy, happy Festivus and I'll check back in a few days around the time of the other holiday! :-) For now I have to head out to Home Depot. I hear they are having a sell on Festivus poles!

Smile today and don't forget to send someone a hilarious Festivus e-card!


Haha, I heard about this-its's awesome. Christmas has become waaaaaay to coomercialised.
Anyway, hope you have a nice Christmas and a happy new Year with your family. =D

About me

  • I'm Ruben
  • From Modesto, California, United States
  • This space could be a million lines long but I will try to make a long story short. In April of 2003 I was diagnosed with a rare terminal liver disease and treated for Hodgkin's Lymphoma in my neck. Because of the combination of diseases and amount of liver damage, doctors estimate that I have between 2 and 5 years to live. Hence the name of this site, "Each Day Counts." If I cannot win this battle I will fight, love and travel until the very end!
