CHRISTMAS THING OF THE DAY: A Very Calvin and Hobbes Christmas

Readers of Bill Watterson's 'Calvin and Hobbes' comic strip probably remember the many gruesome snowman installations that Calvin created over the years. From a swimmer desperately trying to escape from snow sharks, to a deadly snow octopus, to scenes of violent snowman death, Calvin never ran out of ways to dismay his parents and neighbours while delighting the rest of us.
