Festivus Gift Guide

Today’s official JoeShopping Blog post was written by Featured Blogger Whit.


You’ve probably noticed the hoopla in the office, on TV, and across the internet about PC greetings. It’s the same thing every year. Some people are offended by the phrase “Merry Christmas” and think we should say “Happy Holidays.” Holidays, if I understand correctly, includes Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza, and whatever else you may be into. It might also include New Year’s. I’ve heard it both ways.

What I haven’t heard is anyone include Festivus in the mix, and that’s what I find offensive. Are we so far removed from the era of Seinfeld that people have forgotten “a Festivus for the rest of us?” I hope not.

Here are some great ways to help those you love and like (or work for) celebrate Festivus, which is on December 23. Make Festivus part of your happy-ish holidays, always.
