“Happy Festivus,” is a phrase taken from a “Seinfeld’s” episode of 1997. It seems the observation of "Festivus" is creeping into the Pop culture. Maybe it’s time to use the phrase more often.
While I was growing up in Tehran, America was my dream world. I imagined it as a society where everybody was welcomed, people were open-minded and family life was so organized and structured.
Today, my vision has changed. I can see all of the cultural and racial issues in America. Sometimes I wonder in a nation of immigrants, in a society that ethnic diversity is growing by leaps and bounds, why there should be an argument over saying “Happy Holidays?”
