Festivus briefly shares space with nativity scene
Thursday, December 23, 2004
BARTOW, Fla. -
... Since the nativity was erected in Polk County, displays have gone up honoring Zoroastrianism and the fake holiday Festivus, featured on the TV show ``Seinfeld.''
the site almost immediately sprouted alternative displays, including a simple sign that reads: ``Festivus for the Rest of Us - Donated to Polk County by the Seinfeld Fan Club.'' ....
....The display, a reference to the fake holiday featured on an episode of the television sitcom, did not include the totem of Festivus - a bare aluminum pole instead of a tree. Key rituals of Festivus include accusing others of being a disappointment and wrestling.
