The rest of us are everywhere

From Sheffield, England to Nova Scotia, Canada. From Dallas to Frankenmuth. The book Festivus:The Holiday for the Rest of Us chronicles Festivus wherever it springs up.

There are, for instance, at least three known cats to bear the name Festivus. Each feline's life story is told in the book.

The men who live in the Festivus House in Oxford, Ohio, are not cats. Not metaphorically: they are not neat. Nor literally: They are human. Here is a photo of Josh, one of the residents.
