    In October 1993, a tiny start-up called the Food Network debuted to little notice. Twenty years later, it is in 100 million homes, approaches a billion dollars a year in revenue, and features a galaxy of stars whose faces and names are as familiar to us as our own family's. But what we don't know about them, and the people behind them, could fill a book.

    In one of the most memorable episodes of Seinfeld ever, Frank Costanza (Jerry Stiller) revealed some of the rituals of a Festivus celebration: a bare aluminum pole, a competition involving feats of strength, and of course, the traditional airing of the grievances. Transcending television to become a national phenomenon, thousands of people now celebrate Festivus, partly to thumb their noses at the commercialism of the holiday season, but really because Festivus is downright fun!
