America is the land of inclusiveness, and December is when people of many faiths and beliefs celebrate important holidays. So when Kish and I walking down in the Short North today, it was nice to see that a shopkeeper remembered to recognize one holiday in particular.
That’s right: Festivus . . . for the rest of us.
And to properly recognize Festivus, here’s a snippet from the Seinfeld script The Strike, when the Costanza household’s odd holiday traditions were first described:
FRANK: Welcome, new comers. The tradition of Festivus begins with the airing of grievances. I got a lot of problems with you people! And now you’re gonna hear
about it! You, Kruger. My son tells me your company stinks!
GEORGE: Oh, God.
FRANK: (To George) Quiet, you’ll get yours in a minute. Kruger, you couldn’t smooth a silk sheet if you had a hot date with a babe.. I lost my train of thought.
(Frank sits down, Jerry gives a face that says “That’s a shame”. Gwen walks in)
JERRY: Gwen! How’d you know I was here?
GWEN: Kramer told me.
KRAMER: Another Festivus miracle!
And now, time for the feats of strength.
