Merry Christmas everyone!
May everyone have a Merry Christmas!
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all you good folks who enjoy Luann and exchanging thoughts about her and her friends. Thank you everyone for your contribution to this medium for making it such a lively, entertaining and informative experience. I love your wit and wisdom even when I strongly disagree with your position. Let’s have a great time in 2018.
They miss it with every snore.
Times ’ave changed
Brad’s hair style hasn’t change sense he was a kid
Did they put a tree up this year? I must have missed that.
I guess college age Luann doesn’t get up early on Christmas. I have the feeling my college age kids will not have that problem tomorrow.
That would be, “No.”
I hope to have a frank and Nancy morning. merry Xmas to all here!

Wizardgoat, how did you do that?. I tried- no go.
You can open Windows Character Map or equivalent. Select Arial Unicode MS font. Loads of special characters that can be pasted into a comment. They’re characters, not embedded graphics, so they’re allowed. You can copy and paste your favorite ones into a Word file, so they can be retrieved quicker when you want them.
You may also be able to find an extension for your particular browser that makes this process easier and quicker. I use “Character Palette”, but it won’t work with the most current version of Firefox. I’m using an older Firefox version.
I think that if after you type a comment, you click outside of the box to deselect it before clicking the COMMENT button, it may eliminate the double posting that’s been going on. Seems to be working that way for me, at the moment.
I’m embarrassed to admit that my first thought upon seeing the pendant Toni is wearing in the first panel was “did she put the car air freshener around her neck?” And on that note, Merry Christmas (and belated Happy Solstice to those of us who celebrate it)!
Not a chance they’re missing that fun, lolol.
Merry Christmas to all of you, and God bless you in this coming New Year!! This strip today made me smile….because we did the same thing after our children left home. But I would love to relive those Christmases of long ago…sigh. The grand babies are coming now, so when they are here in the next couple years and are old enough to be excited, it will all start over, and we can’t wait!!
What ever you celebrate and however you celibrate may your memories be sweet and your joy complete.
Frank & his schnoz totally at rest…..funny…..
It is time to find that present from Luann Again and try some couples screaming monkeys yoga.
To all those who celebrate, I wish you a Merry Christmas. All others, I wish you a wonderful day. From our house to yours, hugs for everybody!
A new Christmas day at the DeGroots.
They can all exchange gifts, have dinner, and watch The Life of Brian.
If I hadn’t retired, I would probably be at work right now getting airliners ready for the after Christmas travel rush. Miserable way to spend a holiday, but lots of overtime pay.
Wouldn’t this have been Brad & Toni’s SECOND Christmas with the DeGroots as a married couple? Oh well… MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL!

Seasons Greetings to Everyone here, and Best Wishes For Peace, Good Health, and Prosperity in the coming year.
And never forget to “Laugh” And “Love”……,
I’m thinking… no. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS all you Luann-ophiles out there!
For once, the Luannitics are united.
Happy Christmas and Merry New Year everyone! Also this is accurate, our kids are grown and gone, we woke up at 10 am this morning, and the tree has not gotten up yet. But we still feel it and send that to everyone here, including our dear trolls.
Merry Christmas to my favorite comic, Brad and Toni are my favorite storyline.
Not really. Slept through it, so I’m thinking there was nothing to miss.
A Wonderful, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All !!!! May your merriment, festivities, and presents be all bright [and ‘code-compliant’] ! :) -CtE
Why isn’t Brad wearing his seat belt?
Merry Christmas Luanites! May peace be with you.
Oh, sure, Brad; they miss it. In their dreams!
Merry Christmas, Luannophiles!
Perhaps they are just getting into the car … Toni first, and properly buckled up. Brad just sat down and hasn’t put on his safety belt yet.
JayBluE must be busy celebrating the holiday, so I’ll pinch-hit with these:
“Pardon Me, But Your Sleep Is Showing”
“Kind Of A Drag…Out Of Bed” (♪♫)
“Under Cover Agents”
“Wedded Bliss — And Bedded Bliss”
“Getting A Jump-Up On The Holiday”
Like the DeGroots we got to sleep in this morning. Surprisingly, that was with our five year old granddaughter in the room! She is/was: Firstly. the only child present. Secondly, exhausted from a weekend of celebrating with her father and brothers. Once she got up (after 9:00 A.M.) she was very anxious to open the gifts!
For Argy: A few days ago, Argy inquired if I had a good meat loaf recipe – I did find the one my Mom used to make decades ago. Not being an avid meat loaf lover, I still thought it was pretty good. So, for you Argy, here goes. This recipe makes two loaves, so you can cut the ingredients in half if you just want to make one. Baking time will remain the same.
2 Lbs ground beef (Never from frozen!)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/8 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
3 cups (about 4 slices) soft WHITE bread cubes (1/2" size)
3/4 cup milk – the real stuff, this is an old recipe
2 eggs cracked into a small bowl so you can pick out any little pieces of shell, depending on how adept you are in cracking eggs
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 pinch dried crushed thyme
Glaze: 1/4 cup chili sauce or 1/4 cup catsup and 2 tablespoons corn syrup
Prep: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Soak bread crumbs in the milk. Add eggs. Beat with mixer. Add all other ingredients except for the glaze ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Form two loaves in a 13" X 9" X 2" glass baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Then remove the loaves from the oven, spread the glaze over the loaves, then bake for another 15 minutes. You can put parsley sprigs over the top as a garnish, if you wish.
There you go, Argy – hope you find it to be good. Take care, -Brd
Sometimes just surviving makes Christmas special, maybe next year we’ll be healthy enough to generate some enthusiasm for it.
