Today you decide on the cookie cutter I must somehow incorporate into December's holiday. If this month follows suit, your suggestions for a cookie cutter to match my holiday will go together about as well as peanut butter and anchovies or salt and pancakes. That is to say... not at all!
You should know that while you are busy making sure I have my work cut out for me, I am having a great time selecting each month's holiday. This month was no exception. In fact, this might be one of my favorites so far. I laughed and laughed and laughed after stumbling on this holiday. Meanwhile, Richard couldn't believe I had never heard of it!
This month on December 23, we will be celebrating Festivus, a holiday created on Seinfeld in response to the commercialization of Christmas. The slogan is, "Festivus, a holiday for the rest of us". Festivus Festivities include three components:
- Festivus Pole: It is an unadorned aluminum pole, apparently in opposition to the commercialization of the decorated Christmas trees.
- Airing of Grievances: where the celebrant tells their friends and family all of the instances where they disappointed the celebrant that year.
- Feats of Strength: where the head of family tests their strength against one participant. Festivus is not considered over until the head of the family has been pinned.

I have absolutely NO idea what I will do with this holiday or your cookie cutter for that matter, but bring it on. Click on the Fancy Flour website and select the cookie cutter you think I should have to use. The cutter receiving the most votes wins. In the event of a tie, the winning cutter will be selected from a hat.
Signing off until tomorrow...
