Quite tacky. It's supposed to be a bare metal pole and besides, that doesn't look like aluminum to me.
Aluminum is preferred because of it's high strength-to-weight ratio.
At least it doesn't have tinsel.

Sorry, I call foul! That pole is not unadorned.

I think it’s a Asherah pole...darn Canaanites found a way to make a pole out of metal instead of wood.
And shouldnt it be a “plain unadorned metal shaft”?

Is there any way to load the Festivus pole with Roman candles, bottle rockets, and toy rocket engines to send it into orbit in the style of Yale grad John Kerry's windsurfing vector above? It might prove a fitting end to the Winter Solstice/festivus prank.
