Everybody enjoys holidays in their own way, but there is one holiday that stands out above all others. Festivus is a holiday that may seem like a joke, but it’s a very popular holiday in the United States. We will love Festivus if you don’t like the commercialism associated with Christmas. Let’s look deeper into the past. There is no doubt that many people feel pressured during Christmas. This is the most expensive season of the year and can cause financial stress. It’s nice to have a day that’s the opposite! The date was created by Daniel O’Keefe, a late author. Daniel O’Keefe was an American writer who worked at Reader’s Digest over 30 years. Festivus is something of a family affair as Dan O’Keefe was Daniel’s son and made it popular in 1997 by making it the main focus of Seinfield. This episode will give you an overview of Festivus. You’ll see that some events are easy to explain, which is ironically called “Festivus Miracles.” Also, there are practices like “Feats of Strength”, “Airing of Grievances,” and an unadorned Festivus pole and Festivus dinner. It doesn’t matter if you view Festivus Day as a playful consumer resistance festival or a parody of the holiday season, it is always a lot of fun. It is also perfect for those who don’t like Christmas or hate all the commercialism associated with December. It was created by Daniel O’Keefe, an author and editor. He and his family celebrated it as early as 1966. How did Festivus grow to be so beloved if it was a family tradition only? We must go back in time to see the Seinfeld episode “The Strike” to find out how Festivus became so popular. But there is more to Festivus’ name than just a television episode. It is because “festive” derives its name from the Latin “Festivus”. You should. Festivus can be described as an adjective that means “excellent, jovial and lively”. It comes from Festus which is Latin for “joyous; holiday day; feast day”. It also makes one think that Festivus may be a way to show that you don’t have to be materialistic to enjoy holidays. Festivus, which means “joyous; holiday; feast day”, is easy to remember and even easier to do. Festivus is a holiday that people celebrate to escape the pressures of Christmas shopping and commercialism. Festivus can be celebrated easily and it is simple to remember how to celebrate. However, there are some things you need to make the holiday special. Seinfeld’s episode shows them using an aluminum pole to replace a Christmas tree. The O’Keefes used to keep a clock in a bag and attach it to the wall. The dinner usually consists of turkey or, in some cases, meatloaf served on a bed with lettuce. Next comes the Airing of Grievances. This is where everyone at the table stands up and tells others about their dislikes and how they feel the world has disappointed them. Festivus Day opposes Christmas commercialism and all the pressures that it brings. You could consider this idea when you decide how to celebrate the date. Send a message to your friends to see how they are doing. They don’t need to buy anything or spend a lot of money for Christmas.
