In 1997, Christmas changed. With a single episode of Seinfeld, the world became privy to a new form of holiday celebration that eschewed other traditions and denominations. Instead of a tree, an unadorned pole gets pride of place. Rather than share happy stories, everyone gathered airs their grievances. And, instead of settling down on the couch after a hearty meal, attendees compete in feats of strength.

Okay, so maybe you still enjoy tinsel, turkey and street cricket with your family on December 25. Even so, Richmond's Uitgang Bar is making sure you can have some Festivus fun as well. The pub's shindig takes place on Saturday, December 22 and the official Festivus date of December 23.

In keeping with tradition, there'll be an airing of grievances led my owner Fraser Rettie, so you can air yours and be infuriated by everyone else's, and a Festivus pole. Not so Seinfeld are the $5 pots, $7 schooners and $9 pints available all weekend and the free sausage sizzle on Sunday.

Festivus Weekend will run from 12pm–11pm on Saturday and 12pm–8pm on Sunday.
