New Violent Blue up. (not that cartoon on the side. That was someone else)

We’re kind of balancing the line between Thanksgiving and Christmas today.
My wife was a little surprised to see this strip seeing as I’m very anti-christmas. I think it’s kind of a case of mistaking the disease for just a symptom. It’s cumulative and degenerative. The season gets pushed earlier and earlier, it feels more and more false and I get more and more resentful, increasingly tiered of it all. There was a time when it was a mere annoyance rather than a full blown disdain.

On the other had, I guess I’m guilty of treating Thanksgiving as “Pre-Christmas” too, I just put the finishing touches on my back santa hat, and have been playing a number of almost Christmas songs (A Punk Rock Christmas has some really great stuff. Nicely melodic and suitably depressing)and already introduced the girls to “Monsters Holiday” (by Bobby “boris” Pickett, same person who created “The Monster Mash”), still I think that’s more of a reaction to being blasted in the face with bloody Christmas music every time I leave the house.
