    The Airing of Grievances will begin promptly in the middle of Festivus dinner. They will be preceded by a Marney-like diatribe from the host and will conclude with two people smoking at the table and putting their cigs out in the gravy boat.

    Wasn't Festivus the sidekick on Gunsmoke?

    This year I'm going to wrestle my stepmother. She's short, but what she lacks in height she makes up for in cat like reflexes.

    I'm wrestling my father. He's in his 70s and has never trained any grappling arts, so it should be a short portion this year. I think the airing of grievances will comprise the vast majority of the holiday this year.

    Here's a bit of movie/TV trivia for you: If you've ever seen the John Wayne movie The Quiet Man, that's Festus in the pub playing the accordion and singing The Wild Colonial Boy.

    "Dermot Fahy ... F-A-H-Y. No "E" Squireen Danaher!" That's Ken Curtis.

    That's him in the blue cap at 3:05:
