The fake holiday, which was the focus of a “Seinfeld” episode, involves airing grievances against those who have been disappointments through the year.

"Good morning, #Festivus celebrants and twitter! Today, I will have an #AiringofGrievances to wish you a #HappyFestivus," Paul tweeted Saturday morning.

He went on to target several people, including President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump says 'Failing New York Times' should be held 'fully accountable' over Russia report Trump says 'Failing New York Times' should be held 'fully accountable' over Russia report Trump tweets ICE will begin removing 'millions' of undocumented migrants MORE.

He also had a grievance with former Sen. Harry ReidHarry Mason ReidTrump weighs in on UFOs in Stephanopoulos interview Trump weighs in on UFOs in Stephanopoulos interview Impeachment will reelect Trump MORE (D-Nev.), questioning how the Nevada Democrat never told him "about the aliens."

The grievance appeared to be a reference to a report earlier this month that the Pentagon acknowledged for the first time the existence of a program charged with investigating unidentified flying objects.

According to a New York Times report, the $22 million Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program began in 2007 and was funded primarily at the request of Reid, who has long had an interest in the topic.

He also aired a grievance with Sen.

Paul has celebrated Festivus in the past.

He issued a series of tweets airing his grievances last year to celebrate the made-up holiday.
