Today I want to write about something that maybe isn't so retro, but is fun anyways! Festivus was first celebrated in 1966, and was brought to the public via Seinfeld in 1997. The holiday for the rest of us is on December 23 and many still celebrate it, including me! (Though not as seriously as some...) Some Festivus traditions are the aluminum pole, the airing of grievances, and the feats of strength. My personal favorite is the pole, it is easy to reproduce with an old wrapping paper roll and aluminum foil.
