Parker doesn’t like peeing in the rain

This year, I bought everybody gifts but didn’t really feel very connected with a holiday. Then I started thinking about Festivus and, before quoting anything, Googled it to make sure I got all the terminology correct. I’m not sure what happened after that. Something clicked in my head. I knew that this was the year that I would wish people a Happy Festivus and really mean it. I love the phrasings of the activities: Feats of Strength, Airing of Grievances and Festivus Miracles. I find this wholly delightful. I’m particularly enamored with the idea of gathering your nearest and dearest and telling them how they’ve disappointed you over the past year. I also like the fact that the official date of Festivus is December 23rd; which, incidentally, is also my parents’ anniversary. (Coincidence? Probably.)
