Yes indeed. Christmas time is a celebration I grew up with in my family. I realize that many people the world over do not celebrate Christmas but around here, most do...and that's ok because to me it doesn't matter if you're a 'believer' or not, you can appreciate the general feelings of family love, joy and good cheer. These are some thoughts I had while living in Vancouver, far from my Newfoundland & Labrador home.
As an aside though, this is a true story: see in panel 6 the tree shatters? Well, I remember as a child, Dad would bring home a tree and go to work repairing it. Reason being, that in Labrador West, in late December, everything, trees included is frozen solid. The branches would break under the force of a breath almost. Once in the house Dad would drill holes and insert the branches that had broken off! Honest!
