Festivus Pole To Accompany Nativity Scene In Florida

Fox News may soon regret throwing an imagined “War on Christmas” in our faces on a yearly basis, and this is mostly because their imagined enemies are finally deciding to take up arms. In a move that surprised even the man who requested it, Florida’s Department of Management Services approved arequest to display a Festivus pole at the state Capitol alongside a nativity scene, Christmas tree, and Three Wise Men display.

Those who have great taste in television and are old enough to remember will recall that Festivus is a holiday created by George Costanza’s father in the hit TV series Seinfeld. The holiday, which takes place on December 23, involves a Festivus pole along with beloved traditions such as “Feats of Strength” and the “Airing of Grievances.”

Here’s the video with George Costanza explaining Festivus.
