Happy Ffestivus (Dec 23).

Festivus was conceived of in part as a satire on the commercialization of Christmas (or Xmas for those reading this on a tiny little phone screen). For those unfamiliar with the holiday, here's a brief rundown:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Festivus

It should be noted, with irony, that Festivus has now become the subject of a fair amount of commercialization. You can purchase various T-Shirts and other products dedicated to a satire of commercialization. There is even an entire web site dedicated to Festivus (and to selling a Festivus related book and merchandise). Ain't free enterprise grand?
