It's Christmas Card Day!


I recently came across the Peanuts comic strip (posted above) in my TLLG FB newsfeed. Evidently it was originally published on December 2, 1972. Since today, December 9th is Christmas Card Day, I think it's a good time to share Woodstock's wisdom, as well as Snoopy's skepticism with his lesson learned.

I'm not small enough in stature to go sit in my mailbox as Snoopy is doing (in frame four of the strip), but I will take his cue and remain hopeful. After all, we are in the season of Advent; a season where the emphasis is on waiting in hope with expectation.
