On this day, Happy Festivus to the rest of us! Festivus was created by writer Dan O’Keefe, but it wasn’t popular in mainstream culture until the holiday was featured on Seinfield, in December, 1997. Popular Festivus activities include the “Airing of Grievances”, feats of strength, and celebrating with a Festivus Pole.
