If there were a prize for “best made-up holiday,” Festivus would surely win. George’s dad’s answer to the tyranny of Christmas and Hannukah was to make up his own holiday belief system, centered around a Festivus pole and one man’s mad belief that he could get rid of everything he disliked about the holiday. You know, like tinsel. Ah how I miss “Seinfeld.” Read on for the top five Festivus quotes from the “Seinfeld” Festivus episode to put you in a happy Festivus mood!
Frank Costanza: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.
Kramer: Is there a tree?
Frank Costanza: No. Instead, there’s a pole. It requires not decoration. I find tinsel distracting.
Frank Costanza: It’s made from aluminum. Very high strength-to-weight ratio.
Kruger: I find your belief system fascinating.
Frank Costanza: Welcome, new comers. The tradition of Festivus begins with the airing of grievances. I got a lot of problems with you people! And now you’re gonna hear about it!
Jerry: Gwen! How’d you know I was here?
Gwen: Kramer told me.
Kramer: Another Festivus miracle!
Frank Costanza: It’s Festivus… for the rest of us!
