The Festivus Thread

All those who are shunning Christmas in favour of Festivus, come in here to celebrate this holiday period.

We will air our grievances and describe to each other the ways in which other forum members have disappointed us this year.

Here's the aluminium pole in place of the Christmas tree.

Here is the holiday's genesis.

I've got a lot of problems with you people. And I'm gonna tell you about them

However, I'm going to let someone else start first.

We will also give suggestions on who deserves the award for feats of strength this year.

I think you are stubborn and unwilling to admit when you're wrong.

I am disappointed in the whole forum for failing to support fast_clay's most popular poster bid.

I am disappointed in wildegirl05 for...well, she's just a disappointment all round really.

I am disappointed in Mikey and Betty for not starting a relationship and becoming the personification of cuteness.

I am disappointed in JM for not following through on his bet forfeit with Adam.

I am disappointed with Adam for not entering X Factor.

We need feats of strength suggestions.

Considering the importance of a high strength-to-weight ratio, I got a pole made of a composite material. Epoxy resin reinforced with carbon fibers. :worship:

Great thread topic, it's pointless to celebrate Christmas if you're not christian or religious ;)

I hope you have a great Festivus and New Year as well guys, specially Jolan, Gu and James :hug:

for Gu, who certainly thought this when he was watching a Rafa's match:

disappointing bump...

Agreed. I read the whole thread expecting it to be either entertaining or controversial, but it's not really either.

Perhaps I may make a controversial suggestion?

Let the materialists, hedonists and commercial enterprises take over the 10% or so of the period between December 23rd and January 1st that they don't already own.

Move the Christian celebration of Christmas to the week after Easter. Nobody knows the exact dates of Christ's birth or death, so it seems fitting to me that the religious year starts with his birth and finishes with his death and resurrection.

I'm now preparing to be shot at from all sides.
