Christmas Day 2017

We see the end result of Elly's stupid plan to make the children wait until all the adults showed up to Share The Magic (or whatever the Hell ever her goal was) when Lizzie can't find one of her presents in all the wreckage everyone but Elly foresaw.

(Strip Number 5067, Original Publication Date, 26 December 1988)

Panel 1: As Elly cleans up the wreckage of her Clever Plan to make sure everyone enjoyed the Miracle, Lizzie says her about the little pearl earrings Grandma gave her.

Panel 2: As we zoom out to a shambolic mess of wrapping paper savagely rent asunder, Elly gets all gobsmacked because Lizzie says that she can't find one of them.

Summary: The target demographic will howl and curse small children for being greedy and selfish and against happiness, love, God and motherhood. It's only horrible garbage snarker-troll fungus people who sit in basements not caring about orphaned refugees dying of world diseases in war zones that say cruel things about how it was either Bev's or Elly's job to intercept the kiddies and hand out the gifts in an orderly fashion to prevent crap like this from happening.
