Merry Christmas to all!

So what is the deal here? Did Elly put the cards on the mantel without reading them first, and she's just getting to it now? Or she perusing a new batch of cards? Why is she so moved to hear that someone died, when she's apparently not close enough to that family to hear about it by means other than a Christmas card? Do the baby picture and the graduation photo depict two different people, or did Elly dig up the former to compare it with the latter? Why does she think in the last panel instead of continuing aloud? Is it me, or is this whole strip greeting-card level itself?
