With the holiday season here, at least to some, many retailers are selling the Seinfeld Festivus pole. Fans of the series will no doubt remember the episode.
The Lunchbox website description for the pole reads: ”T’was many years ago when Frank Costanza set out to the toy store to buy a Christmas gift – a special doll for his son. As he came upon the only one left on the store shelf, another man snatched the doll from Frank’s grasp. A battle ensued that would change the holiday season forever. As Frank rained blows upon the man, a revelation washed over him – – “There has to be another way!” Frank exclaimed. From this, a new holiday was born. No religion. No commercialism. It would become a day filled with Feats of Strength, Airing of Grievances, and of course, the Festivus Pole. It is – a Festivus for the rest of us!”
