Festivus — for the rest of us

On the eve of Christmas Eve, a small group of friends gathered to celebrate Festivus. It’s a “Seinfeld” holiday, where you celebrate the holiday season without pressures of commercialism.

Instead, you celebrate with an unadorned aluminum festivus pole (not a tree), practice feats of strength (for us, Liar’s Dice, because Mia’s living room is just not big enough to have us all rolling around together), airing of grievances (some grieved employees who ask for too many raises, bosses with no class, DUI checkpoints and girls who don’t keep the bathroom stocked with TP), and nine-beast-stew (aka cioppino).

It’s always a fun, fun evening with new and old friends. Thanks, Mia, for being such a wondeful host. Mia also won the Festivus trophy. The peacock will be displayed proudly in her living room for the rest of the year.

Here are a few snapshots from the evening.

    Yummy! We had Thai Food at Lotus Thai Bistro in Carlsbad. I had Asian spaghetti with veggies and yellow curry. It was amazing. I can still taste those seasonings!

    Awww I really, really wished I could be there. It looks like so much fun! We might have to do some Liar’s Dice sometime in the near future!
