My wife Sue and I have been running an annual event for 15 years. It started with my desire to run a winter blow-out invitational to invite all of our contacts to and make a great way to increase our chances towards staying in touch with those we know.
My passion to do something like this started with winter break from Madison in 1993. I wanted to have some of my friends over to my dads house. My dad asked me about what kind of numbers I was going towards. I told him that I would invite about a dozen people and if 5-7 showed up, I would be happy. Well, the word got around as I invited it that if they were going to get together with others anyway and that would hold them up from getting with me to bring them along. As it happened, we had about 30 people over and it was smashing success.
This confirmed to me that folks like to have a winter gathering to keep things active in the time entering the new year. I determined at the time that the first weekend in February was when I wanted to do something like this. At that time, it was after the Super Bowl and the week before Valentine's Day. Now the NFL has expanded, and Festivus for the Restivus is a pre-SuperBowl event. A friend of ours in the recent years shared with us a concept of Soup or Bowl to take to bowling alleys. This works well with Seinfeld culture as there is a soup Natzi in the sitcom.
My wife and I met in Lafollete House of Adams Hall in Madison, and the group we met together out there is our core group for Festivus.
Festivus includeds feats of strength, airing of grievances, Festivus poles and whole lot more. Festivus poles are made by the Wagner Companies on Brown Deer Road here on the north side of Milwaukee.
This all presents great tie-ins with us and gives us a way to thank all the folks in our lives for the great life we have together. Please enjoy Festivus whether it is the traditional time of Dec. 23, our schedule, or one of your own.
Please join us for our annual Festivus celebration. We will recap the year and commence with the airing of grievances. Please call in and tell us why you celebrate Fesituvs.

Proceeds from Flip Flop Festivus to be held in Baltimore, MD on September 20, 2013 will directly benefit the groundbreaking research efforts of Johns Hopkins University Professor Dr. David Moller, whose team is on the cusp of creating a lead diagnostic test for Sarcoidosis, which would save millions in healthcare expenses.
Established in 1998, The Life and Breath Foundation is a 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to raising funds to improve patient care, improve communication between patients and physicians and fund research to find a cure for Sarcoidosis, which affects 1 in every 2,000 Americans. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $300,000 for Sarcoidosis research studies. Because of reduced NIH funding, Sarcoidosis research efforts require significant philanthropic support to move forward.
