All that's left to do is change the name....

....from Christmas to Festivus. Digby's right that many of us already celebrate it:

Since the family consists of Jews, Christians, atheists and sundry wierdos, our holidays are pretty much all about food. But, without knowing it, we've been celebrating Festivus for years --- particularly the sacred "airing of grievances."

According to this NY Times article, more people are choosing to formally celebrate Festivus, but isn't there already a Festivus coiled at the heart of every Christmas? I come from a family that likes debate, or else I'm sure the feats of strength would be incorporated along with the airing of grievances.
