Ugly Christmas Sweater Synchronicity

Cidu Bill on Dec 22nd 2012

It’s kind of tough to find real synchronicity in Christmas comics — but since I’d never seen Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties referenced in a comic before, and then saw two in one day…

And I’m not entirely grasping the second one: ugly Christmas-related characters sweating? Though Frosty (?) isn’t particularly ugly, is he? I mean for an anthropomorphized snowman.

And I’m wondering… how common are Ugly Sweater Parties anyway in the real world?

Might help if I could read the label on the bottle, but I assume it’s the stuff they use to preserve butterflies. Still can’t figure out why Lio would want to capture Santa like a butterfly, though: the strip is often quite weird, but it does maintain an internal logic.

Secret Santa (formerly Reindeer Games)

Cidu Bill on Dec 17th 2012

If you’ve ever worked in an office, or lived in a college dorm, you’ve probably encountered the Secret Santa phenomenon: you’re given the name of a random person, and told to buy a present for him or her.

And that’s what several dozen CIDU members inadvertently signed up for: they were each assigned a comic strip character (from one of their favorite strips), and told to choose the perfect holiday gift (with a $25 spending limit).

And Carl Hiaasen’s next book will probably be set in Florida, and Nadine Gordimer’s next book will probably be set in South Africa, and Harlan Coben’s next book will probably be set in New Jersey…

Because elephants are Republicans and Republicans only care about white people and are therefore inclined to think only about white Christmases but they know they’re supposed to be politically correct so they’re acknowledging other colors of Christmas???
