A Festivus Giveway!

By Amy Amatangelo, TV Gal ®

The “Festivus” episode of Seinfeld will be airing today in syndication. To celebrate, Sony Pictures Television sent me my very own “Festivus” pole. But since it is the season of giving, I’m giving away this unique holiday decoration.

As you may recall, Festivus, the holiday started by Frank Costanza, celebrates feats of strength and the airing of grievances.  It is a “holiday for the rest of us.” Post below what you and your family do to celebrate the holiday season. You have until Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. PT to post your comment. I’ll pick a winner at random from the comments. You must live in the United States to be eligible to win.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!

  1. We have our own kind of made up holiday- “Non-Denominational Gift-Giving Day” – since we are a family of blended religions. NDGGD is celebrated on Dec 24th. Traditional foods are a make your own pizza party and chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. The only rule of NDGGD is that all gifts must be wrapped in recycled material; newspaper is fine if you are lazy, but the more creative the wrapping material, the better.

  2. We celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas. We light the candles everyday night and give out one small gift for Hanukkah, with the big gift the last night. On Christmas, in the morning we open gifts and gave a big breakfast for our immediate family. In the afternoon we go to Grandpa’s house to celebrate with the entire family.

  3. For the past 45 years we’ve travelled to Rhode Island to celebrate with family. But, this year, our son and daughter in law moved to California. So the tradition ends for us as we are heading to LA. It will be different in so many ways.

  4. My family is seriously holiday-challenged. My most recent “favorite” holiday memory is exchanging gifts with my mother in a Wendy’s parking lot, standing in front of her open trunk. Very festive. I guess that was better than the previous year, though, when she told me she didn’t want the digital picture frame I had gotten her. “Looking at old pictures makes me sad,” she said. This would make sense if fifteen minutes prior she hadn’t just given me copies of old pictures she’d had made. And then there was the time…oh, wait, we’re not airing our grievances now, are we? 🙂

  5. We do the basic drive from relative to relative for two days. This year we went to my aunts on christmas eve, had my parents and sister over Christmas morning, and are now headed to my husband’s sister’s for dinner followed by his aunt’s for dessert!
