The Irony of Festivus

Monday December 14, 2020
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM


Celebrated annually on December 23, Festivus was created by writers of the TV series Seinfeld. This holiday "for the rest of us" as symbolized by a silver pole devoid of decoration mocks Christmas and all the commercialism that accompanies it. The irony, of course, is that Festivus was invented to bring in (and it still makes) a massive profit at Christmastime.

Join Dr. Kelli Marshall to learn more about the origins of this silly holiday and its place in popular culture, Chicago's included. A screening of the Seinfeld episode featuring Festivus will precede the lecture.
