Yesterday morning, EPB expanded its Holiday Windows showcase to include a display just in time for the annual December 23 holiday Festivus.

For over 60 years, EPB has upheld a tradition to decorate the windows of its downtown office with ornate Christmas scenes using trees, animated characters and thousands of lights, and this year, it made a controversial decision to include Festivus, an alternative holiday to Christmas.

The Festivus display includes the traditional unadorned aluminum pole and animated figures engaging in Festivus activities, including the “Feats of Strength” and the “Airing of Grievances,” plus characters expressing amazement at easily explainable events which are called “Festivus miracles.”
