(Strip Number 1387, Original Publication Date, 21 December 1987)
Panel 1: We find ourselves at a tree lot watching John, Michael and Elizabeth pick out the tree. Having spotted the one she wants, an excited Lizzie points it out and says "THIS ONE! THIS ONE! I WANT THIS ONE!"
Panel 2: For some reason, she tries to prove her love for the tree by embracing it. This works as well as could be expected as she hurts herself getting prodded with the branches.
Panel 3: As John pulls her away (and as Mike snickers to himself), he tells her that she can't hug a Christmas tree.
Summary: While I'd like to think we'd get a cute little thing about how affectionate Katie was as a child, if we do get notes, someone will make a bad pun about the phrase "tree hugger."
