About this Event
Well guys another year is here. Hopefully it’s brought you joy and laughter and some wonderful times with family and friends. Let’s continue this with a DMS celebration of the holidays our own way. Well, ok, our own ripped off Seinfeld way. Please bring out your family and friends so they can see where you go when you run away from them. Please bring something to share with the tribe and help clean up or setup if you want brownie points.
Axie came up with a really fun little exchange last year of filling fun socks with candy and exchanging them. It was super fun and let's plan on doing that again.
According to www.festivusweb.com festivus can be defined as follows: The slogan of Festivus is "A Festivus for the rest of us!" The usual holiday tradition of a tree is manifested in an unadorned aluminum pole, which is in direct contrast to normal holiday materialism. Those attending Festivus may also participate in the "Airing of Grievances" which is an opportunity to tell others how they have disappointed you in the past year, followed by a Festivus dinner, and then completed by the "Feats of Strength" where the head of the household must be pinned. All of these traditions are based upon the events in the Seinfeld episode, Strangely enough, our Festivus traditions also have roots that pre-date Seinfeld, as it began in the household of Dan O'Keefe, a television writer who is credited for writing the Seinfeld episode.
This is a pot luck so please sign up to bring something here:
DMS will be frying a couple of turkeys the day of hopefully (this might change stay tuned) so we have one meat covered. Come enjoy the spirit and comradery that only DMS can bring.
