December 23 marks Festivus, a parody holiday made popular by the sitcom Seinfeld, but embraced by American pop culture as a moment of relief in the middle of stressful holidays. The holidays are often full of pressures and demands, which makes outlets like Festivus appealing. David Sedaris also takes on the holidays with zealous humor in his collection of holiday stories in “Holidays on Ice.” His stories take on the quirks and odd details of our personal and cultural lives as well as some more offbeat stories.
