Getting Festivus.

Festive Seth preparing for the Airing of Grievances.
2012 © Colehaus Cats.

‘Tis almost time for Festivus and the Airing of Grievances and Feats of Strength. And let’s not forget Festivus Miracles!

Seth, having memorized and practiced reciting everyone’s list of grievances for the occasion, chucked the whole lot into the garbage once the special blue and gold sparkly bow was placed around his neck. With an almost murderous look in his eye, one doesn’t need to think hard on his top grievance now. As for Feats of Strength, just wait until he gets this bow off, and as for the Festivus Miracle, you can bet he’s got something in store for Mom who just HAD to have this photo.

Uh huh, it’ll be EPIC!

  5. The lady says “Festivus” is one of her favorite Seinfeld episodes.

    Re: the airing of grievances: The expression on his face speaks volumes! Why waste words when you can summon up that kind of look?

    We are always hoping for a Festivus miracle (but not one akin to any strange OTB guys showing up for dinner).

  6. Wait til after Festivus to air your grievances!

  12. Oh I love that picture. You look so serious Seth. We would too if the Person put a darn collar on us. The nerve of the Mom to do that to you. You showed her. Have a great day.

  15. Seth, don’t be too hard on the mom during the Airing–after all, the bow appears just once a year!

  16. Festivus miracles? Does the wearing of large decorative bows count?

  17. Oh, yeah, one picture is worth a gazillion words!

  18. Uh oh, looks like your mum is in big trouble.

  19. Happy Festivus and solstice. May 2013 be bright!

  20. Oh! Oh! Oh! I forgot all about the Airing of Grievances! Thanks, Seth, for this excellent post which reminds me that I need to prepare my list. Feats of Strength? Hmm, I dunno about that. Maybe it’ll go on my list of Grievances.

  21. Oh dear, that bow is EPIC! We fear Seth has every right to air his grievance!

  22. Happy Holidays to you, too!!

    Best wishes Molly
