Rovefest is an alternative holiday to Christmas
Day that is celebrated on the 25th of December to commemorate the birth of Karl Rove
. It is not a genuine celebration of Karl Rove, but a satirical
celebration that takes advantage of the hilarious coincidence
that he shares a birthday with Jesus Christ
and is therefore designed to mock the reinvigoration of conservative
American politics of which Karl Rove has been a major architect.
Rovefest is typically characterised by a night of singing, dancing and vote-rigging of a wet T-shirt contest (or any other such contest in the spirit of Rovefest).
