Excerpt:

MIAMI — A Festivus pole made of beer cans has been installed at a large South Florida intersection, just a few feet away from Baby Jesus. Deerfield Beach activist blogger Chaz Stevens wanted to express his nonreligious beliefs, so he cited his adherence to the made-up holiday celebrated on a famous episode of the 1990s sitcom “Seinfeld,” the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. The holiday was touted in an episode as a “Festivus for the rest of us!” Character Frank Costanza puts up the totem of the holiday, an unadorned aluminum pole, in protest of Christmas’ commercialism.
