Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as an alternative to the pressures and commercialism of the Christmas season. Author Daniel O’Keefe created Festivus. Seinfeld featured Festivus in a 1997 episode entitled “The Strike”. Over time, Festivus has become a parody holiday festival and as a form of playful consumer resistance. Hence, to celebrate Festivus, Printable Learning offers this fun activity book that features the practices and celebrations related to Festivus. For example, the airing of grievances occurs during the Festivus meal. In this practice, each person tells everyone else all the ways they have disappointed them over the past year. As an ode to non-commercialism, the main decoration for Festivus is an unadorned steel pole. Also, other activities include sharing the Festivus meal and playing “Feats of Strength.”
