Dutchess County Executive Airs His Grievances About New York
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro stood next to a pole and aired out his grievances about the past year in the Hudson Valley, New York State and more.
On Monday, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro celebrated Festivus.
"As we prepare for Christmas, I hope you can find some time today to perform some 'feats of strength' in honor of Festivus, a holiday for the rest-of-us," Molinaro wrote on Facebook.
Festivus is a made-up holiday that was featured in a 1997 episode of Seinfeld. It was originally created by author Daniel O'Keefe and has been in pop-culture since O'Keefe's son, Dan O'Keefe, co-wrote the Seinfeld episode, "The Strike."
The holiday was created "as an alternative to the pressures and commercialization of the Christmas season," according to Festivus! The Website.
The holiday features an aluminum pole, instead of a tree. It also features the "Airing of Grievances," prior to a Festivus dinner and "Feats of Strength."
The holiday's slogan, which you may have seen on social media on Monday, or in the past, is "A Festivus for the rest of us!"
In honor of the Seinfeld holiday, Molinaro posted of photo of himself standing next to an aluminum pole and wrote about "the timeless Festivus tradition of the Airing of the Grievances!"
