Festivus, a Google trick for the rest of us
Before your feats of strength, take a moment to appreciate this nifty Google search trick.
Google performs many feats of strength on a daily basis, providing us with content and knowledge and doodles and lots of stuff to be grateful for. Today, however, there’s something special: If you type “Festivus” into the search engine, results include a gray bar along the side of your screen—the aluminum Festivus pole digitally rendered!
Philistines unfamiliar with this special day may ask, why such austerity? “I find tinsel distracting,” explains Frank Costanza, the holiday’s Seinfeldian creator.
(Festivus is traditionally celebrated on Dec. 23, but let’s not stand on principle.)
“At the Festivus dinner, you gather your family around,” Costanza explains, “and tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year.”
Festivus is the Internet’s holiday. It’s our heritage. It’s part of who we are. Air your grievances in the comments.
