Happy Festivus (2017.12.23)

Festivus For The Rest Of Us.

“Happy Festivus” is the classic salute of Festivus, a celebration central to the Season 9 episode of Seinfeld “The Strike” which aired on December 18, 1997.  Hence, folks have been moved by the goofy, loony, and wacky holiday to observe Festivus as other significant rituals.

Any Festivus gala must begin with ….

… the critical event The Airing Of Grievances, and lastly…

….the decisive closing event…The Feats Of Strength.

A word of caution to be careful about giving to The Human Fund,

and may we all find our own “Festivus Miracle.”

 

Holiday Happiness (2017.12.20)

Some people… pray, sing, or chant…

…in some means, manner, or method…

…about this life, the afterlife, or the next life…

…with a hope, desire, or dream…

…to find, promote, or nurture…

…the same realization, sensibility, or conscience…

…in a word: Happiness.

May we all do so.
