    This must be the reason my local fire department is constantly calling me to ask for monetary donations for the firefighters.

    No Shannon arc is complete without Bwad and Toni.

    This is a telegraph that this arc will go into overtime.

    Hmm. Is Bwad the Santa?

    (With due respect to Bwad – to me, the nick name is affectionate – clearly, he is the most developed character in this strip)

    This is an interesting departure from the usual – the main characters become the dark silhouettes.

    Has the Evans’ team decided to notice Christmas this year? That could be a nice warm up for a very interesting New Year’s Eve when the clock hits midnight.

    Oh this ought to be good. As soon as Shannon sees Toni, she’s gonna know the Santa is fake, especially if it turns out to be Bwad..

    So either Shannon is gonna become distrustful of the one positive male figure in her life or she’s gonna go along with it, knowing Bwad is a fake because she loves her Bwad

    And here I was just thinking the other day, that THIS would be a golden opportunity for Brad and Toni to spend some UNINTERRUPTED alone time together, (with Luann watching the kid) ON STRIP! And wouldn’t you know that at least one (and maybe BOTH) spouses are WORKING?

    I SWEAR, the Good Guys in this Strip can’t get a break for love of money!

    Oh Well. At least We got a fairly GOOD. Idea of what Next Week is gonna be about! Indulging the child further!

    Happy Holidays, My Fellow Luannatics!!! ;)

    Might not be a great idea, because if that’s Brad as Santa, Shannon will 1. recognize him right away and 2. YELL out that she knows it’s Brad and ruin it for the other kids.

    Toni’s the elf, Brad’s the Santa? Volunteering through the fire department? Or getting paid to save for their dream house? Probably didn’t tell Shannon what they were doing, because she’d recognize them? What a plot!

    Maybe he is not the original, but for sure he’s the best Santa for Shannon♡. Love the fact that Toni and Brad special Christmas duty is become a tradition. Can’t wait to see what Brad and (especially)Toni will think about Jack.

    Interesting, we get to see how Toni (at a minimum) greets Jack (Luann, who is this? Luann, this is Jack? Jack, didn’t know you know my sister-in-law. Jack, great to see you again!). The best part will be if a response is required from Luann. No matter a few people might have to shift to my style of coffee. Speaking of such, about time for bao, gravy, and some bacon. Happy Hogswatch to all. May the Hogfather bring you what you wish.

    I don’t think Jack has met Brad or Toni. Wouldn’t it be funny if Jack Hit on Toni? After all, he did something similar at the dog park with Luann present. She’s a little older that him, but an exceptional quarry. :o)

    Then Brad takes offense and the Mall is rocked with a Santa brawl. Sigh. Oh well. Nothing ever happens at Christmas. ;o)

    Jack and Luann are so cute together! Comfortable, having fun. Sometimes that’s better than a boyfriend.

    Also, this just might be Brad and Toni’s day off. Good for them for volunteering perhaps.

    Most firehouses use a 24 hour on 48 hour off shift system. Which leaves plenty of time for gig type work.

    Shannon gets passed around like a baton in a relay race. This time, I think Toni is participating in a benefit for the local kids sponsored by the fire department.

    I don’t get her logic, wouldn’t she still want her wishes to be relayed to Santa via one of his helpers? Plus Santa doesn’t make the presents, his elf army does it.

    Tell her the truth. Santa does not make the toys. Uses a slave army of elves to make them on the cheap. Though there are rumours of outsourcing.

    You know, looking at the comments, Bwad is a lot more popular than I thought!

    1212 was right. A kid’s innocent mispronunciation of your name can be very endearing. Both an earworm and a term of endearment.

    As long as we know it wasn’t meant in meanness or to be demeaning.
