Day 10: Festivus


Happy Festivus!




If you don’t know what Festivus is, then we probably shouldn’t be friends. Given that it’s the holiday season, though, I’ll enlighten you before we part ways. As described by Wikipedia, Festivus is “a well-celebrated parody, has become a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 which serves as an alternative to participating in the pressures and commercialism of the Christmas holiday season.

We can credit the ’90s sitcom Seinfeld for popularizing the holiday, and as Wikipedia explains:

The holiday, as portrayed in the Seinfeld episode, includes practices such as the “Airing of Grievances,” which occurs during the Festivus meal and in which each person tells everyone else all the ways they have disappointed him or her over the past year.

This is me with my grievance.


Just kidding. For those of you that don’t know, my family’s golden retriever and I have a love-hate relationship in that we’re only friends when no one is looking. Because I’m not shy about liking our family black lab more, it’s a running thing in my family that the golden and I don’t get along.

In reality, she’s far from any actual grievance; and now that I am home with her, the black lab, my chocolate lab, and my immediate family, I don’t really have any grievances to air today. However, just because I haven’t had to air any grievances, that’s not to say I won’t be partaking in the “Feats of Strength.” My dad better watch his back.
