Today is Festivus. We celebrated Festivus for the first time last year. It was a difficult time because we lost Paw on Dec. 1, and celebrating a holiday that just screamed, "Voice your frustrations!" felt right. So instead of all that rush, bustle, and joy, we spent the evening at a bar in Algiers with some friends and dropped all thought of Christmas. It was great. So this year, I'm going to recommend that y'all give Festivus a shot; stop the Christmas madness and take a day to breathe. It will do wonders for your spirit.

I've got my unadorned aluminum pole out front and center and looking as tacky as possible. : )
