This week on Hall of Justice:

This episode is about the only holiday that would be discussed on the Hall of Justice podcast. Festivus, created in 1997 for the 9th season episode “The Strike” of the hit TV show Seinfeld, is a fictional holiday that has continued long past the show’s run. In the fictional story, Festivus occurs on December 23. It includes a Festivus dinner, an unadorned aluminum Festivus pole, practices such as the “airing of grievances” and “feats of strength”, and the labeling of easily explainable events as “Festivus miracles”. The episode refers to it as “a Festivus for the rest of us”.

Longtime journalist Allen Salkin wrote the book “Festivus: The Holiday for the Rest of Us” in 2005. Since then, he has been an authority on all things Festivus, and it is a Festivus miracle that he is on this episode. He has written for many publications including the New York Times and New York Post. He also is a part of the New Books Network.
