It's finally here! December 23rd, a Festivus for the rest of us! I wish you a most wonderful and joyous Festivus. All newcomers to the holiday are welcome, as Festivus has no religious, racial, or other prejudices. For more on the holiday, check out my earlier post, here.
The unofficial Festivus theme song
I thought about trying to write a Festivus song, maybe to the tune of White Christmas. Something like, "I'm dreaming of a white Festivus, with every grievance that I write..." But I think the mood of Festivus is summed up by a popular Huey Lewis & The News song. Reminisce with me if you will: "You don't need no money. Don't take fame. Don't need no credit card to ride this train." Here's hoping you feel the power of love on this wondrous Festivus. Hmm, maybe there should be a nationwide contest held for a Festivus theme. Then again, if it had a theme song, it would just become amalgamated with all the other holidays. So nevermind.
