    ***Official Festivus Thread 2009***

    Before we get to the feats of strength and the presents laid out under the Festivus Pole, its time for the airing of grievances.

    So share, how have your fellow CWers disappointed you this year?

    Great choice mate. Bamboo is obviously cheaper, but I find aluminum has a very high strength-to-weight ratio.

    I thought I'd save some money by going down the assemble-it-yourself route. It was a bit tricky figuring out what went where:



    But I finally had it gracing my living room. You're right about the distracting decoration. I too find that an undecorated Festivus pole has an understated elegance and solemnity to it..

    Very nice set up.

    Here is my Pole



    You can also see the space set aside for the feats of strength, a process I find quite refreshing

    You can speak of this in the airing of grievances part of the holiday. The set up gear is most crucial though

    I think I'll be alright setting everything up. As G I Joe mentioned, the pole has a very high strength to weight ratio
