Festivus is traditionally celebrated on December 23rd. In 2012, the first year we celebrated Festivus at the Grey Lodge, the 23rd was the Sunday before Xmas. We had so much fun we decided to celebrate Festivus again in 2013, but on the Sunday before Xmas which was the 22nd. That worked out too.

So now every year at the Grey Lodge, we observe Festivus on the Sunday before Xmas. It's kind of like Washington's Birthday on old calendars with Washington's Birthday (Actual) and Washington's Birthday (Observed). If you have a problem with that, be sure to air your grievance at the appropriate time (see below).

For 2014, once again this will be a traditional, old fashioned Festivus with all the trimmings including the beautiful unadorned aluminum pole. We are still looking for a fruitcake to display (but not eat).

Feats of Strength
It wouldn't be Festivus without Feats of Strength. We will have prizes for the greatest feats.

Holding the Big Mug o'Pennies was a hoot so we'll be doing that again. Arm wrestling will be back too.

We know that holding a big mug o'pennies isn't in everyone's wheelhouse, so you are welcome to demonstrate your own Feat of Strength. For the last two Festivuses, Andrew Jardel balanced a stool on his chin, which was really cool and only a little bit scary.You have a whole year to work on your feat of strength for Festivus 2014.

Evil Genius will have prizes for Seinfeld Trivia winners.

Airing of Grievances
The other big part of Festivus is the airing of grievances. Once again we will have an open mic for you to air your grievances as effectively as possible.

Twisted Holiday Songs Sing Along
For 2014, there will be a sing along featuring some "very special" holiday songs including Frothy the Snowman, I Saw Daddy Punching Santa Claus, Truly Rotten Christmas, and more!

Ugly Sweater Contest
Break out your ugliest sweater for Festivus. We will have prizes for best ugly sweater, nicest ugly sweater, and best homemade ugly sweater.

Festivus Miracles
Keep your eyes open for Festivus miracles. We spotted several last Festivus.

And it wouldn't be a Grey Lodge event without great beer. We will have a greatest hits of Christmas seasonals.
