Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 04, 1989
Calvin: When are we going to get a Christmas tree? Dad: Oh, I dunno. Probably a little after New Year's. Calvin: After New Year?? Dad: Sure. We can just go up the street and pick from the neighbors' driveways. Calvin: What?! Dad: Sometimes there's still tinsel on the tree too, so you don't even have to decorate it! We'll save time and money! Mom: Ok. What did your dad tell you this time?
