Happy Festivus! (Well, technically, yesterday was Festivus, but I celebrate it all season.)
Do you know about Festivus? It’s a secular holiday that anyone can celebrate based on a Seinfeld episode, “The Strike.” It’s basically a silly and fun way to celebrate the holidays without anyone feeling left out. Pretty cool, right? I think so 🙂
Festivus includes feats of strength, a Festivus pole, the airing of grievances, Festivus miracles, and a Festivus dinner that ties it all together! It’s all a blast… a Festivus for the rest of us! Some people have started having Festivus parties to celebrate this wacky holidays. In my neighborhood, where people are a little more “alternative,” I’ve seen Festivus decorations and even been wished “Happy Festivus.”
Since Blogthings is a worldwide site incorporating many nationalities and beliefs (which is how I LIKE it!), I wanted to write a holiday quiz that we all could take together. No matter what holidays you celebrate or not, you can celebrate Festivus. I really love the lighthearted, welcoming aspect of this holiday, even if it started out as a joke.
So in that spirit, I wrote What Part of Festivus Are You? Don’t worry if you don’t know much about the holiday yet… you can still take this quiz. I don’t promise deep personality insights, although who knows?
Take What Part of Festivus Are You?, and let me know what you get. Also, let me know if you had heard of Festivus before taking this quiz. I had a little trepidation about writing this quiz, because I wasn’t sure how many Blogthings fans were also Seinfeld fans. Luckily, I feel like everyone can take this quiz. And who knows? Maybe I’ll make a Festivus celebrator out of you after all. We could certainly use more feats of strength and Festivus poles in the world 😉
