As Festivus approaches, and the dinner is prepared (and boy, do I have some grievances this year!), herein is opened a thread to record our Festivus miracles.

Festivus miracles - the commonplace explained in miraculous terms - can be expected to occur at a rapidly escalating basis once the clock actually turns onto midnight. Some areas of the world are in the Festivus zone now, or soon will be, so this thread can document and attempt to rationally explain the expected and the mundane events which truly amaze and surprise celebrants.

I will report my first Festivus miracle once it occurs, and ask posters to do the same. Thank you, and remember: there is no alcohol served at the Festivus dinner, so bring a hip flask.

I can't wait for Feats of Strength....

With two girls in my house I am a lock this year.

Well, the feats of strength goes on until the host of the Festivus dinner is pinned, so it can take months. So maybe the two girls will have to gang up on you for that one, or it will be a long year.

Actually, wait, come to think of it, if nobody pins the host of the dinner the event (and Festivus) would only last as long as he or she could stay awake, because once they fall asleep they should be easily pinned. So I am now of the opinion that the feats of strength does have a shorter time limit, although for people trained in staying awake for days at a time it will seem, towards the end, as a very long ordeal of strength.

Really looking forward to The Airing of Grievances. I plan on spiking the conversation with a few bottles of my homemade wine, "Crippled Creek" - Made from the fruits of the mountain mere yards from where the celebration will take place.

Well, then that would be off-canon. The Festivus dinner, where the Airing of Grievances occurs, isn't served with spirits. If you wish to drink what sounds like a very good wine, please pour it into individual hip flasks which the dinner's participants can then carry on their person.

Hi, and good to "see you". In fact, talking to each other after almost half a year is.......a Festivus Miracle!!! I know we can't mention anything about the thread we met on, but after Christmas I'm going to give that page a good post. Let us, and me, know how your Festivus goes. Happy Christmas, Festivus, and all the other holidays to you.

And thus Festivus has ended, but not without a true Festival miracle being reported by bigfatfurrytexan. I hope everyone pinned someone, or got pinned themselves, and the Festivus dinner went well eaten and enjoyed.

Until next year.....Happy Festivus!!!

Thank you Aleister, It has been a while. My Festivus went well, good food and drink, and sleep...very much needed sleep. And I managed not to cry at all. It's a first for me. My Festivus Miricle.

Please, when you post on that thread, please U2U me, and we will see if we can't get a tizzy going again!


Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy New Year.

And Thank You for the smile Aleister......much needed......

And here's a post-Festivus miracle - at the exact minute you posted your post I was composing mine at "that" doom thread! With ISON taken care of, you can now wipe the tears away and launch into whatever needs launching into.

I just popped back in here to say my Festivus miracle is naught......I got on a thread I started last year, and I have been on the verge of tears.......Got to youtube and type in Slayer Christmas lights......Stupid I know. When I get done with my things today, I will watch these vids with my kid. She needs to be taught what real music is......
