Do you know about Festivus?

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 😉

Should You Have a Mullet?

Should you rock a super cool retro mullet? Take this quiz to find out.

Do mullets crack you up? Mystify you? I’d have to say both for me! It’s funny how we didn’t really notice mullets until they were a thing of the past, and while we make fun of them now, a few people can rock a mullet well. I love (quietly) spotting mullets out in the wild!

Should you be rocking an awesome mullet? This quiz is just for fun, but who knows? Maybe you are the type of person who looks good in a mullet. Take this test to find out if you should be living the mullet life: Should You Have a Mullet?

Quiz: What Does Your Favorite Month Say About You?

whatdoesyourfavoritemonthsayaboutyou

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a favorite month. I would say that my favorite month is almost certainly October, for a multitude of reasons. October is the month that it truly starts to cool down in Austin, which is something I look forward to each year. Of course, Halloween is another thing I love about October – because you can’t beat dressing up, being scared, and eating treats. Finally, I am sort of an election nerd, and while November is election month here in the US, a lot of campaigning and early voting gets started in October.

So what about you? Do you have a favorite month? If you’re drawing a blank, then consider that maybe your favorite is your birth month. Or maybe your favorite is the month of your number one holiday or your favorite weather. If you’re at a loss, start with your favorite season and work back from there. The most important thing for taking my quiz to today is having a favorite month. So think carefully and select one for the purpose of today’s quiz 🙂

Quiz: The Mustache Test

themustachetestAre mustaches creepy or cool? I feel like that’s a perennial fashion question! I will say that I am generally pro-mustache. Especially for men who find it easy to grow a mustache… no thin mustaches please! So, I guess it depends on the mustache and the mustache wearer. Some people can pull a mustache off really well, but for others – well, it just ends up looking off putting.

I think the most interesting thing about mustaches is how they tend to go in and out of style pretty quickly. So quickly in fact that in the time it takes to grow a mustache, it may already have gone out of style! I joke, but I have noticed that mustaches are pretty polarizing. I do think that Movember has made mustaches a lot cooler, but I also wonder if mustaches have reached a saturation point for now.

Luckily, you don’t have to have an opinion on mustaches to take my newest quiz… or even the ability to grow a ‘stache. This mustache quiz is just for fun – and developed for mustache lovers, mustache haters, and the mustache ambivalent. It’s a celebration of everything we love about mustaches. Or everything we hate. It all depends on your perspective. And it’s very quick to take!

Ready to get a little ‘stachey? Just head over to The Mustache Test, and pick the funky mustache you like the best. And presto! You’ll find out what your selection says about you. Who knows? This quiz may inspire you to grow your own mustache – or sport a fake one!

Comment below and let me know what you get on The Mustache Test! How do you feel about your result and mustaches in general? Would you like even more mustache quizzes – or have you had enough of this trend?
