A lovely gift…
There’s hope for our little guy after all.
Hugs are the BEST presents all the time!
Ya’ gotta love this one. Calvin’s being thoughtful here.
The all time best C&H!!!
Is the sandwich chunky peanut butter on white bread cut into triangles, ad infinitum ad nauseum? :)) (See yesterday.)
Go with tuna, Calvin. That’s one gift Hobbes will appreciate.
…not as much as he appreciates Calvin’s hug. It’s a lot rarer than tuna in a tin.
I wonder how many more people will go “aww”.
Too bad more of us couldn’t have the insight of Calvin - love lives for ever.
Santa would definitely appreciate a beer with his sandwich but he always got cookies at my house and everyone knows milk goes best with cookies. Come to think of it if Santa got beer at Christmas the gifts would be wrapped much differently and alot of the toys wouldn’t be put together because he’d be asleep drooling in the lazyboy chair!
A hug from ones darling is always the best gift!
Dad told me Santa liked Slim Jims and bourbon, and if I left him a double, he might forget the coal on the sleigh. Some Christmases I thought I heard Santa swearing at his toolbox.
This is the sentiment that I remembered from the old days of reading this comic.
The recent sentiments, commented on by others, about Calvin’s obnoxiousness, etc, do not carry anywhere near the same effect as this.
Love is the thing the world needs most and the thing we have the least of. C&H have figured that out. Now the rest of us have to follow in their footsteps.
Sorry but I have to just:
First the AWWWWW
We left Santa cookies, but a brandy to go with :)
Santa always wrote a great “Thank You” note!
senseilance : i agree with you…
calvin surely have gone a bit too obnoxious later on…
his mean looking eyes are pretty scary
Santa would like a beer. But only after the last house.
It’s not often we can AWWWWW this comic but today we can. I will put this one among my favourites.
A classic Christmas strip.
I hate to be too repetitive but Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Santa would have to pass up the beer anyway. Even though the packages are all wrapped and loaded, tagged and addressed, Santa especially should know that one does not drink and drive.
Twin snake: six and counting!
It so fits, Calvin.
It’s because of strips like these that C&H shall live on forever. Amen. Bless you Bill Watterson.
What meens Awwwwwwwww?
First the SHOCK of Calvin thinking beyond his normal narrow focus, then the Awwwwwwwww of the thought …
(excuse me, I couldn’t resist, Apologies to all)
There is no better gift than friendship.
Always loved this one :)))
I wonder if Calvin left Santa a GLBC Chirstmas Ale!
def the best one in a loong time
Who was that kid and what happened to Calvin?
LX013 It’s just like saying ‘Oh, isn’t that sweet!’ People use it when they see something especially touching. It can be used to express sadness, too, such as ‘Aw, that’s too bad’.
How would you say it in German?
hugs……one size fits all.
reminds me of many years ago when my wife and I failed to put anything in the stocking for our daughter’s stuffed whale…..nice comment by Mr. Watterson on the the true spirit of Christmas……
Calvin & Hobbes is a wonderful strip - and this one is so touching. But why the Christmas strip in February?
Simply love it….<3
I do not know about a beer for santa
But extra sleep for Dad would be nice
The best gifts are ones from the heart. I refuse to be apologetic when I say Awww!
Margue: Oh, oh….I think!
little tear just rolled out
At least Christmas isn’t entirely about the “loot”! LOL!
♫ ♪ ♪…although it’s been said many times, many ways…
awwwww ♪ ♪
and you probably expected me to say what?
It’s February, for crying out loud… ☺
At my house, Santa preferred the 6 1/2 oz bottles of Coke with his home baked chocolate chip cookies. He always left the empty bottle behind so we could get back the deposit. Nice guy that way.
and everyone thinks he is horrible. that hug took care of everything bad for a year. might get that sandwhich the way he wants it now..
Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
if you didn’t leave a sandwich for santa he will write a note saying: “That’s okay; I needed to lose weight anyway!”
The best gift of all. The love of your boy.

I’m sure they will manage to stick a bow on a can of tuna for Hobbes. It is Christmas after all, and Mom bothered to make Dad think about it for once.
See! I’m giving the parents some credit.
And he’s even too late to get into Santa’s “Good” book this year!
And if it wasn’t clear in my last post:
Aw. The last panel RULES!
*The strip is great! Always loved this one. I have the whole collection of Calvin and Hobbes, but I’m surprised none of you parents haven’t remarked on the EARLY WAKE UP CALL Christmas morning, after staying up half the night to get the gifts out after the kids went to bed! :-D
It’s beautiful, the strip the comments. (Happy Tears Now!)
oooohhh!!!! soooooooo sweeeettttttt!!!!! =)
nothing like a hug…..awwwww
Calvin is slowly, but hopefully surely, beginning to understand that Hobbes himself is the gift….sic transit gloria mundi…
(couldn’t resist saying it, despite - or because of! - the comments about it)
Boys of any age have both a sweet streak and too much testosterone (or just plain ego). They just need to be reminded continually - and, as an older boy myself, I’m afraid to say that’s never really finished.
That is so sweet…..
That last panel is tee-shirt worthy, or coffee cup worthy. That is just beautiful.
4:00 in the morning is the right time to be with your best friend.
The true Christmas spirit is when you just give a hug for a gift. :)
You gotta love the heartwarming ones
