Lynn makes a facile comment about how the end of Halloween means the beginning of ads for Christmas.

(Strip Number 331, Original Publication Date, 2 November 1982)

Panel 1: As Elly puts the trick-or-treats bags in a storage bin, she thought-bubbles "Thank goodness that's over with; we've been bombarded with ghost and goblin commercials since August."

Panel 2: She turns on a radio and muses about how wonderful it will be to listen to it without hearing incessant reminders of Halloween.

Panel 3: An ad exhorting her to come on down to a pre-Christmas super-sale jamboree confuses and saddens her.

Summary: It's sort of telling that Lynn wants to make an ordinary phenomenon like merchants switching what they're promoting and turn it into a means of persecuting her. Any sort of promotion of something that might mean that she has to deviate from her routine equates to The Man keeping her down.
