About the author:
Mark Nelson's Festivus knowledge has been quoted in national media such as the Los Angeles Times and USA Today. You may have heard him speak about Festivus on your local radio station such as Kenosha KLIP, WCBS National Radio and KSRO Sonoma. He has a great radio voice, like a cross between James Earl Jones... and Mr. Furley from Three's Company. Webmaster of in his off-hours, he spends his days working in a library. You know that little stamp? The one that says "Library"? Well, that may not mean anything to you, but that means a lot to him. One whole helluva lot. He would probably go on strike for a bagel, and often contemplates how cold cuts should be sliced thin so the flavor has nowhere to hide. His ultimate idea of comfort is to be ensconced in velvet and eating a block of cheese the size of a car battery.

"This book completes Festivus' transformation from borderline child endangerment to beloved pop-cultural footnote of the late 1990s." ~ Seinfeld Writer Dan O’Keefe


The author leaves nothing out, adds a full dose of humor, and leaves you with a complete understanding of Festivus. Good reference and a good read! ~

The book has everything! Did we tell you that an aluminum pole is featured on the right side of every page spread? Of course it’s plain and unadorned, just as Festivus aficionados prefer. ~
