Festivus clips from Seinfeld, “The Strike” (Dec. 18, 1997)
Last year, a Florida resident named Chaz Stevens made headlines when he erected a Festivus pole made of beer cans in the Florida State Capitol, where a Christian Nativity scene was also on display. Then Fox News host Gretchen Carlson made even bigger headlines by being outraged by it. “Why do I have to drive around with my kids to look for a nativity scenes and be, like, ‘Oh, yeah, kids, look, there’s baby Jesus behind the Festivus pole made out of beer cans!'” she demanded.
Others say the real outrage is that it was made of beer cans instead of the traditional plain aluminum pole specified by Frank Costanza.
