Over the past few weeks, in this column, I’ve been talking about all the holidays that come around this month: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa. But I’ve left out the most important holiday; the one that is most overlooked and whose practitioners are most oppressed. That’s right, Festivus. It’s coming up on Friday. Sure, to everyone it’s nothing more than a Festivus Pole and Feats of Strength. But did you know you also get to tell everyone you know how they’ve disappointed you during the past year? After a year like 2011, this is a holiday I can get behind!

I really don’t know how to end this article, so I’m just going to call it a Festivus Miracle and say look at these great pics from the weekend. Enjoy!

Brian is so DC. Born on Pennsylvania Ave (not there) to a lifelong Federal worker father and a mother who has worked for Garfinkel’s, the Smithsonian, and Mount Vernon. Raised on the “mean streets” of Cheverly, MD; went to high school at Gonzaga College High School (Hail Alma Mater!); and now trolls the corridors of Congress as a lobbyist, you couldn’t write a more quintessentially DC back-story. When he isn’t trying to save the country from itself, Brian can be found walking DC looking for that perfect photograph.
