2012's Festivus was such a blast that we are doing it again in 2013. While Festivus is traditionally celebrated on December 23rd, the Sunday before Xmas seems to be a great day to celebrate Festivus, so that's what we are going to do. If you have a problem with that, be sure to air your grievance at the appropriate time (see below).
It will be a traditional, old fashioned Festivus with all the trimmings including the beautiful aluminum pole. Hopefully we will find a fruitcake to display (but not eat).
Feats of Strength
It would'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. And we'll think up some new feats of strength. Suggestions are encourged (send them to firstname.lastname@example.org).
We know that holidng a big mug o'pennies isn't in everyone's wheelhouse, so you are welcome to demonstrate your own Feat of Strength. Last Festivus, Andrew Jardel balanced a stool on his chin, which was really cool and only a little scary.
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.
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'll have a greatest hits of Xmas beers on tap.
