    That’s about all it’s good for.

    Entirely too many “manufactured” holidays. Sweetest Day, Kwanzaa, Boss’ Day, Secretary’s day, etc. All to sell cards, flowers, candy, presents, etc.

    Wikipedia: Maulana Karenga created Kwanzaa in 1966 as the first specifically African-American holiday.2 Karenga said his goal was to “give Blacks an alternative to the existing holiday and give Blacks an opportunity to celebrate themselves and their history, rather than simply imitate the practice of the dominant society.” So having it at the same time as Christmas was not imitating “the practice of the dominant society”?

    Poor Norm. He’s just a shadow of himself. Maybe some day his character will graduate to color.

    Let’s keep holidays celebrating our skin color holy, fellas.
    Racism is a privilege, not a right.

    He does have a pale flesh tone. Just enough to make him appear drained.

    If Rita was smart, she’d have said “I wished him that earlier”, then claim to have been mistaken about who she wished it to if Norm says anything.

    That’s a big “if.”

    I had a White Christmas! Does Andrew have a Black Kwanza?

    Yes, but they aren’t allowed to draw it in the strip.

    It starts on Dec. 26. Christmas is a synthesis of various Pagan holidays centering around Winter Solstice and the virgin birth of Sol Invictus among others. The Church Fathers wanted to derail the Pagans by usurping their own holy days by making it their own Christian one.

    And Madison Ave wanted to usurp the Church Fathers by making Christmas all about sleigh rides and snowmen so we’d be less conflicted about the commercialization and greed.

    And let’s not forget that Christmas is at least 12 days long, and it only started this past Tuesday. In fact, this year the Christmas season extends to January 13 and the Baptism of the Lord.
