Festivus

Chaz Stevens from Deerfield Beach, Florida talks to the media next to his Festivus pole made out of beer cans in the rotunda of the Florida Capitol December 11, 2013 in Tallahassee, Florida. Stevens display was intended to counter the religious Christian Nativity manger also on display. Based on an episode of the television sitcom Seinfeld, Festivus has become a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 to represent the antithesis of the commercialism of the Christmas season.
