Brief Background on Festivus:

Festivus is an alternative holiday, mainly celebrated on Dec 23. It is a secular gathering in defiance to the commercialization of Christmas. It was created by Danielle O'Keefe (author) and was kick-started by the Seinfeld episode, "The Strike." The said episode portrayed practices like Airing of Grievances, Feats of Strength, Festivus Dinner, Festivus Miracles (fun satire of easily explainable events), and the Festivus aluminum pole (cheap non-commercialized substitute for over embellished/gaudy Christmas trees). For more details, visit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Festivus

By RSVPing to this event, you confirm that you are at least 19 years old and will be responsible for your bills for your food and drinks.
