Even in Indonesia the fake holiday was noted today, with Haddy Kustaman tweeting: "Festivus Is Here: Time To Air Grievances." And in Australia, Mik Morley tweeted: "Look out world, the countdown to #Festivus has begun, and I has some grievances..."
Mr. Morley and Mr. Kustaman are referring to the Festivus Airing of Grievances ceremony, which, according to Festivusweb.com, is when you tell your family how they've disappointed you over the past year. This event is followed by the Feats of Strength, when the head of the household must be wrestled and pinned to the floor. Festivus is also marked with a special dinner, the erection of a bare Festivus pole, and, sometime, miracles.
At least one miracle was seen today in Canada. Miguel Yetman today tweeted from Winnipeg, Manitoba: "If my honey shows up today it will be a festivus miracle." She later tweeted: "The honey has arrived! It's a festivus miracle!"
