Happy Holidays! Here is this week’s list of comic strips, poems, and other links from my favourite corners of the web.

The Dark Side of Santa via CandyKorman. There’s a fantastic Futurama episode about this exact concept. How I wish I could still be around in a few thousand years to see how the myth of Santa actually evolves for future generations.

The “Perfect” Holiday – Make It a Family Tradition. This was a thought-provoking piece on navigating the holidays when you have a relative whose disability makes certain traditions hard to follow.

Christmas Carols in the U.S. and Britain via ellen_hawley.  I had no idea there were so many differences between Christmas carols in these two countries. Did you?

What Is Your Favourite Thing to Do on Boxing Day? via SkygateStack. The U.S. shares many holidays in common with Canada, but this isn’t one of them. I was surprised and a little impressed by the fact that this American blogger had heard of Boxing Day…especially since he’s a dog! 😀

Clamdy Canes, Clam Flavoured Candy Canes. No, this isn’t a joke. There really are clam flavoured candy canes out there. If any of you decide to try them, I’d love to know what you thought of them.

Nell. This is a retelling of The Little Match Girl that I like quite a bit more than I did the original version.

25 December 1840 via ruthrblair. I’ve done a lot of reading about workhouses, but this was the first time I’ve never learned what Christmas was like in such a place.

Merry Newtonmas. What a cool holiday. I’m quite tempted to start celebrating it.
