Last week, before I drew this comic, my mom called me, and we had this conversation:
MOM: Are you going to do a holiday comic next week?
DUSTIN: I think so.
MOM: Is it going to be positive?
DUSTIN: Probably not.
I was going to draw a comic called “The tree of spite,” which I have been planning for years. But, I think it will have to wait at least another year, because I decided to go the happy route instead (well, as happy as my comics can get). I really do try and enjoy the holidays. Christmas, Chanukah, Hanukah, Hristmas… it’s just nice to be festive.
So happy holidays, and yes, that really is my awesome fake fireplace!
