"The tradition of Festivus begins with the airing of grievances.
I got a lotta problems with you people..."
As much as I love the "Festivus" episode of Seinfeld with the airing of grievances and the feats of strength, I'm glad that I celebrate Christmas with my family.
Instead of dragging a metal pole into my house like Frank Costanza, I bring in traditions like baking cookies with my kids, watching Christmas movies, and driving around to look at lights.
Thought it might be fun to share a few from around the 'Burg. You'll have to excuse the bad photos...I was driving, and had to stop to take the pictures from my side of the car each time. This method doesn't ensure for the loveliest shots.
From the "Olde Towne" area of the 'Burg:
The display by the guy who owns one of the local bakeries:
A couple of fun ones on our street:
The Griswolds' House, across the street from us. Michaela Byrd says it looks like a gingerbread house, and it's so fun to see their lights come up:
We have some really amazing lights displays on the other side of the neighborhood, but it was getting late and we didn't have any more time left to drive around.
So I'll leave you with this hilarious clip to show you what Festivus would be like if you decide to celebrate it instead.
I just hope you've been working out so you can win the "feats of strength". I'll be eating Christmas cookies!
