There’s a brand-new holiday display at Florida’s state Capitol in Tallahassee: a pole celebrating the fake holiday Festivus from the TV show Seinfeld.

It’s the latest protest exhibit after a Nativity scene was set up in the rotunda last week.

“This whole thing is just a serious feat of … ridiculousness,” says Chaz Stevens, who marched into the Capitol building on Wednesday morning clutching a case of empty Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cans and a 6-foot pole made of PVC pipe. It’s a nod to the unadorned aluminum pole that is part of the secular Festivus holiday invented by George Costanza’s dad on Seinfeld.
