2017-12-16-Ho-Ho-Ho!::
I read about candy canes on the back of a candy cane box once, and thought it would be fun to incorporate it into my Christmas story. These days candy canes come in all kinds of flavors (I’m waiting for them to pop up for Halloween!), but if you want to keep it simple, what’s better than peppermint?

She tells Megan to “respect the art form”, then she does this. Even Fido’s puzzled!

2017-12-14-Ho-Ho-Ho!::
For me (and I suspect for many others), taking down the decorations after the holidays is mostly about trying to stuff everything back into bins for the next eleven months, and not so much about organization. As a result, Candace’s little nativity scene is missing a key player. My memory is a little fuzzy, but I don’t think I originally set out to have her use Santa Claus to fill in for Joseph the carpenter. Maybe one of the Magi? I based Candace’s little history lesson on what I learned of the real Saint Nicholas, who happens to be the patron saint of children, thieves and pawnbrokers.

2017-12-13-Ho-Ho-Ho!:
Every December newspaper funny pages become full of Christmas themed comic strips, and with a character like Candace, it was almost mandatory for me to add a little holiday cheer in my little cartoon. Some of my favorite comic strip Christmas stories are from Bill Watterson’s Calvin & Hobbes, in which Calvin spends the days leading up to the 25th wondering if all the bad behavior he’s been guilty of is going to come back to haunt him.
