    I once heard that the crankiest older people were really nice when they were younger, and vice versa. Not sure if it’s true but it’s an interesting thought.

    Happy Holidays covers Hanukkah (except this year), Christmas, Winter Solstice and even Quanza.

    It isn’t a question of suppressing saying “Merry Christmas” it is just that Christmas isn’t the only thing going on at this time.

    If that be so I will be a very sweet old lady because as a kid I was very cranky!

    Ruth is so clever. She almost left Ms. Avis speechless.

    If certain adults talk a lot to make up for lost time, does this mean Ruthie will be very quiet when she grows up?

    What is the whip for? Tame Avis.

    I believe that it’s a jump rope dear.

    All the best for the holidays to artist and audience alike.

    Ruthie great point with Avis. You will become a great writer with wit and witticism.

    Actually, the start of the holiday season is considered to be Thanksgiving, and since Chanukah coincides with it this year, it’s still covered.

    The same may hold true for Lucy Van Pelt.

    Maybe it just seems that way, especially with people who did very little complaining in their younger years. As they age and get more aches and pains, they have more to complain about. They may still try to maintain their dignity in old age, but sometimes that may not be possible. I know personally a persistent ache or pain has an adverse affect on my personality.

    I have always been a non-conformist and quirky and I continue to be as I get nearer to 80. But I’m still having lots of . . fun.


    I agree that I SHOULD correct people about holiday/Christmas, but if they sound happy, why would I sour their mood?

    By-the-way Ruthie’s response is logical as logic goes for children. Even though Ruthie is portrayed as an inquisitive thoughtful child. Part of the humor and fun of the strip.

    PC just means treating people right, not insulting them. So you don’t want to treat people right? Go right ahead. Keep your vulgarity then. Usually it is the fanatics on the Reich who dislike that. They think calling people names is “real.”
