Festivus for the Rest of Us

Tired of the over-commercialization of Christmas? Even the Pope would agree with you. Some people are turning to celebrate a made-up holiday. No, not Kwanzaa (invented by a California academic in 1960) but a holiday invented on a television show! Lots of festivus fans are celebrating their own holiday on the 23rd with the airing of grievances and feats of strength. The venerable New York Times even produced a large article on the holiday in their December 19th edition. If you want to read it, you'll need to Google it as I don't link to the NYT (they require registration).
