That wonderful holiday for the “rest of us” will be celebrated December 22nd & 23rd at the City Museum!
From their press release:
Celebrate Festivus at City Museum – Saturday, December 22 and Sunday, December 23
City Museum, the museum unlike any other, is continuing the tradition of celebrating a holiday unlike any other: Festivus! Join the rest of us in sacred Festivus traditions: Feats of Strength, Airing of Grievances, Re-gifting, and the non-decorating of the Festivus Pole.
Festivus Events will start on Saturday, December 22nd at 10:00am and will not conclude until Sunday, December 23 at 5:00pm—or, until somebody pins the head of our household to the ground.
What: Traditional Festivus activities: Feats of Strength (consisting of various mental and physical challenges), Airing of the Grievances (where we’ll burn what burns you), Re-gifting (We’ll regift your unwanted, donated presents to someone who needs them), and more!
Where: City Museum, 701 North 15th Street, St. Louis MO 63103
When: Saturday, December 22 from 10am-1am, Sunday, December 23 from 11am-5pm
Why: Because we find tinsel distracting.
Editors: Festivus is an annual holiday celebrated on December 23. It was popularized by the television show Seinfeld in 1997. It is celebrated in varying degrees of seriousness in avoidance of the commercialization of the holiday season.
