Whilst first celebrated by Dan O’Keefe in 1966, Festivus didn’t gain widespread popularity until his son, Daniel O’Keefe – a writer on the TV sitcom Seinfeld at the time – used the celebration as a joke in the show is 1997.

Festivus encourages the celebration of the festive season without the commercial overtones typically associated with Christmas. Celebrate by getting a plain aluminium pole in place of a traditional Christmas Tree, and labelling common and perfectly normal events as ‘Festivus miracles’.
