    You were being good, explaining the troubles you have and then Hobbes egged you into a fight by rolling his eyes. Hobbes did it. Be sure to tell Santa about Hobbes.

    My two older ones are like that. The first round is usually by 7:30.

    Since both Hobbes and Santa are figments of Calvin’s imagination, you can be sure that the latter knows everything that goes on.

    Was anyone else reminded of Tasmanian Devil in that last panel? It also brought to mind the logo for the old black and white TV show, Dennis the Menace.

    Too bad Calvin couldn’t draw on some of that fictitious anger when he’s confronted with Moe, the bully. Moe would leave him alone; just out of respect.

    That was Calvin who was running down the street, screaming, “Help, help, the paranoids are after me!!!”

    Reminds me of the old 3 Stooges line (at least I think it was the Stooges). Larry: “I’m as pure as the driven snow!” Moe: “Yeah, but you drifted!”

    Calvin might still have a shot at Christmas, provided Santa’s surveillance drone is offline.

    “For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

    O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

    I thank God – through Jesus Christ our Lord!

    Romans 7:22-25

    I’m thinking that fighting with a stuffed tiger is allowed on Santa’s list?

    Calvin clearly exhibits what is wrong with our Society in general. Too many refuse to accept responsibility for their own actions and are constantly looking for a scapegoat to blame for their misfortune.

    Calvin, that’s no reason to hate this time of year. Any other time, you’d be good for nothing.

    Calvin’s imagination conjures up more than a talking tiger and time machines, etc. It also conjures up himself as a good little boy.

    FoxtrotFanOfficial has written the same thing on Garfield, Pearls before Swine, Calvin and Hobbes, Luann and Big Nate. He just changed the name so it applies to the comic strip. Can somebody report them please?

    The lines in the last panel are gold. Watterson was a master of witty banter.

    This is so awful, isn’t it? I’m all for children trying to be good, but it’s such a shame that Santa has been turned into a source of fear of being watched and judged, not to mention an impetus for unbridled consumerism. I read an interesting article recently: https://fpea.com/resource/blog/taking-santa-out-christmas-audrey-rindlisbacher
