the twelve days of festivus

Celebrate Festivus With TV Squad!

Festivus is being celebrated in the Costanza house on 'Seinfeld'Happy Festivus, everyone! If you're a television fan, you know that December 23 is the day where we gather 'round the aluminum pole, air our grievances, and perform the feats of strength. Thanks to the writers at 'Seinfeld,' Festivus has become a funny tradition for people who are either sick of the holiday folderol or just like the vision of George and Frank Costanza wrestling each other in a living room in Queens.

As has been our tradition, we at TV Squad have been celebrating Festivus for a few weeks now, culminating in the end of our 12 Days of Festivus, where we celebrated the fact that 2010 is the year of New Jersey.

The Twelve Days of Festivus Start Tomorrow!

Frank Costanza and his Festivus poleIt's that time of year again... time to break out the metal pole, commence with the airing of grievances, and get limber in preparation to demonstrate the feats of strength. Yes, folks, Festivus is upon us once again!

We've been celebrating Festivus since TV Squad began in 2005; it's the first major TV-created holiday, thanks to 'Seinfeld,' and it seems fitting that a website that's all about TV celebrates a holiday that was born on TV.

Starting tomorrow, we'll be presenting what has become a yearly tradition for us: our own version of The Twelve Days of Festivus.

During each of the twelve days, we'll talk about TV that annoyed or enthralled us this past year, culminating on December 23 (the official day of Festivus, according to Frank Costanza), when we talk about one of the biggest trends on television in 2010, for better or for worse.

We'll also have our staff picks of what we want for Festivus, some best/worst picks for 2010, and some other goodies. We even may have a guest or two air some grievances of their own.

If you're new here and don't know what the heck we're talking about, here are the lists from 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
