A ficticious holiday created by writers of the TV show Seinfeld. It was created by George's father, Frank Costanza. The holiday is suppose to be an alternative to Christmas, Hanukka and other more widely celebrated holidays. With this in mind the catch phrase "A Festivous for the rest of us!" was created. Festivous is celebrated symbolically with a plain steel pole called the Festivous Pole and games such as the Feats of Strength are played. Traditionally the Festivous celebration is not over until George pins his father in a Feats of Strength wrestling match.
A Festivous for the rest of us!
