To the readers who question why Holly believes in Santa … I say Holly and Alix are still at the ages where Christmas is magical. Maybe both don’t believe, however they WANT to believe. When my sister and I were their ages we played up the Santa thing. We knew our mom did it all. But it would have been no fun Christmas morning without the gifts and stockings filled with mascara and lip gloss. Plus, this is a comic strip. It’s supposed to make you smile and remember.
