Today's strip is less a narrative and more of a series of pleasant little vignettes about the Pattersons decorating the house for the Holidays.

(Strip Number 6164, Original Publication Date, 13 December 1987)

Panel 1: We find ourselves in the garage on a pleasant December Sunday; as a smiling Lizzie retrieves the wreath, Elly smiles as she picks up a box of ornaments.

Panel 2: As Mike and Elly take ornaments out of the box, we see John in the background unkinking a string of lights.

Panel 3: John and Michael hang up the lights. Since Lynn has never actually watched this happen, her guess at how it happens sends shivers down the spines of people who care about ladder safety.

Panel 4: Lizzie strings up a JOYEUX NOEL banner.

Panel 5: Elly decorates the mantelpiece.

Panel 6: Mike puts holly on top of a picture frame.

Panel 7: Lizzie watches as Elly puts the wreath on the front door.

Panel 8: Now that they've decorated most of the house, Lizzie stands on the front porch and says "Okay, Christmas....We're READY!!"

Summary: We're starting to get to the strips that I sort of liked when I liked the strip. No one is yelling, no one is insulting someone, there are no hurt feelings and it's kind of nice in a cozy, tidy little way.
