As many of you probably know, the fictional "War on Christmas" is in full swing. In the spirit of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a Washington man is attempting to place a Festivus Pole at the state capitol. For those of you how don't know, Festivus is a relatively simple, low cost Christmas alternative. It has but three attributes:

1. An aluminum pole that requires no decoration (the tinsel is distracting).

2. The Airing of Grievances where you tell your family all the ways they have disappointed you that year.

3. The Feats of Strength.
