    Santa grades on a curve so it depends on how good are the other kids (hint: you’re s¢r3wed because Susie lives in your neighborhood).

    “Get on, you big sissy.” – Calvin in Panel 2

    “I’ve been good all day so far.” – Calvin in Panel 3

    I don’t know why, but I love that part so much.

    I think you’d just have to be good each and every day, Calvin.

    The truth is that every present Calvin gets is proof that Santa and his list doesn’t exist.

    Christmas is about learning how to be good. Then you make a New Years resolution to continue being good. Hopefully, you’ll remain good for all of next year. That’s a silly hope.

    You are good, Calvin…but I don’t know about “pretty” or “really”.

    Duplicity or authenticity, a seasonal conundrum.

    I think you’re as good as you’re going to get.

    I would not want to go sledding with Calvin. Come to think of it, I would not want to do anything else with him either.

    Did everyone have a “Dismemberment Gorge” when they were kids? We had “Devils Elbow” on Goat’s Hill. Seemed like it was a 45 deg slope with a 90 deg right angle turn about halfway down. If you missed the turn, the hill dropped off and you were into the bramble bushes and rough terrain. Great fun.

    It’s okay to be bribed, Calvin. After all, that’s the reason for Santa’s lists in the first place.

    Destroying sleds the way Calvin does could get expensive.

    It’s always a matter of degree with this one.

    This is the same way folks think about how good they have to be before God will let them into Heaven.The real answer is much easier.

    Hobbes unfortunately has a grasp of how most of Calvin’s sled rides end.

    Calvin is “good” simply because he is honest with himself.

    Charlie Brown: “You can’t fool Santa!”

    Lucy and Linus (pretending to be nice to each other): “Why not? He’s an old man and we’re a couple of sharp kids.”

    Charlie Brown: “I weep for our generation.” [The more things change………..]

    Looking back; you didn’t think about doing good or bad, you did what you normally did. It was whether or not you were dumb enough to get caught that determined if you were good or bad. Think about it! Most of our bad deeds were not premeditated; they just happened. And if you were really lucky, someone else got blamed for them. Brings back “fond memories” don’t it!

    The name itself isn’t exactly an invitation for fun.

    Were they discussing greed or religion?

    “Acting” good for the reward at the end. Sounds like most “christians” I’ve had contact with lately.

    I like how when Calvin and Hobbes crash into the tree, the sled is still perfectly fine, but right after that it’s totaled! I hope Calvin asked Santa for a new sled!

    “Get on, you big sissy…” “I’ve been good all day so far.” Lol. That’s classic.

    I always pondered this thought myself, it is how I discovered that Santa is not a real person, but an idea.
