While many of you will be concentrating on last minute shopping and traveling today, it's also important to remember that today is FESTIVUS, the non-secular holiday popularized by the hit TV series, Seinfeld.

If you aren't familiar with FESTIVUS, it's the day where you gather with family or friends and celebrate the holiday by partaking in a few "peculiar" activities, such as "The Airing of Grievances" (where you confront family members or friends on how they disappointed you in the past year); "Feats of Strength" (Where the head of the household or party organizer selects a member of the family/group and challenges them to a wrestling match.  The holiday is considered officially over once the head of household is pinned); And the declaration of "Festivus Miracles" (easily explainable events).

Instead of the traditional Christmas tree used during the holidays, an aluminum pole is used for the FESTIVUS celebration.  So as you can see, it's a fun alternative to celebrating Christmas.

So if you are looking for something to do tonight and you aren't caught up in the last minute feeding frenzy of the holidays, get together with your family and/or friends and celebrate FESTIVUS "with the rest of us"!

Don't forget about the Winter Classic Preview: Rangers vs Flyers (7pm live) tonight!
