Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 18, 1995
Calvin: The Christmas season is always a time for personal reflection. Too often we don't examine our lives. This is a time to take stock and think about what's important. It's a time to rededicate oneself to frenzied acquisition...a time to spread the joy of material wealth...a time to glorify personal excess of every kind! Hobbes: Earthly rewards make consumerism a popular religion. Calvin: ...A time to atone for one's frugality!
