A Christian nativity scene and a Christmas tree at the Florida Capitol will be joined this week by another symbol of the holidays: a homemade Festivus pole.

Celebrated on December 23, Festivus is a holiday “for the rest of us” that grew in popularity thanks to the show “Seinfeld.” Traditions include the “Airing of Grievances,” where people share the ways they’ve been disappointed by others during the year, “Feats of Strength,” where the head of a household challenges someone to a wrestling match, and the erection of an unadorned aluminum pole.
