Of all the lasting legacies that Seinfeld has given us, Festivus, the fake Christmas substitute holiday created by Frank Costanza, may be the most enduring. Recall fondly, if you will, the highlights of Mr. Costanza’s beautiful holiday: a pole, the airing of grievances, and the feats of strength.
Seinfeld may be long gone, but Festivus lives on, at least in the state of Florida, where a six-foot Festivus Pole made out of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans has been erected in the state Capitol building in Tallahassee, according to NPR.
Artist/protester/drinker of cheap beer Chaz Stevens constructed the Festivus Pole to protest the lack of separation between church and state after seeing a Nativity scene at the Capitol building.
Not sure whether or not Stevens is planning on challenging his state representatives in a feats of strength wrestling match.
Here’s a collection of highlights from the Festivus episode of Seinfeld to get you in the holiday spirit.
