Cementazo Christmas


crsta12222017

I usually wait a week after I draw a cartoon for The Costa Rica Star before I post it on my site. But, since this has a Christmas theme I’m really not going to wanna see it again after today. I’m not a fan of Christmas clichés used in cartoons, like the naughty list or Santa’s lap, even when I use them.

Do me a favor. Click on the Star’s link above just so they get a hit for this cartoon today. It won’t hurt as they don’t run an annoying video or pop-ups on their site like the ones here.

I’ll be posting a new cartoon in an hour or so. Yes, I’m drawing today. I have deadlines. Besides, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself otherwise.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through PayPal. Every $40 donation will receive a signed print (please specify which print you want or I won’t mail one). All donations will receive my eternal gratitude.

    But Clay, if it wasn’t for the cliches (and the TV specials and the ads and of course 45*’s reminding us how he single handedly won the War on Christmas) How Would We Know It Was That Time Of The Year?

    1. As a minority religion at “That Time Of The Year,” I’m very attuned to all the ways we know it’s CHRISTMAS time:
      – Decorations
      – Lights
      – Can’t turn on the radio or go to a store without hearing Christmas songs
      – Sales
      – People getting their panties in a wad over saying “Happy Holidays,” or the fact that people dare to have holidays around the same time of the year – even if they were there first
      – Not being able to get near a store without dealing with absolute insanity
      – Christmas trees on EVERYTHING
      – Idiots driving around with antlers & wreaths on their vehicles
      – Holiday cards & letters telling you how fantastic are the lives of people you barely know
      – Starbucks cups turn red & someone gets pissed over what’s on them (instead of the over-priced, burnt coffee inside them)

      I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few. Feel free to add to the list! 😀

      1. The funny part is how few Christmas traditions are of Christian origin: manger scenes, going to church, and some of he music. That’s really it. The tree, the wreath, the lights and candles, the big family dinner, the presents, the holly, the mistletoe, a whole lot of other music, most of the TV specials, and more, don’t have diddlysquat to do with anything in the Bible.

      2. Oh, trust me, I’m familiar! Jesus wasn’t even, from what I’ve heard, born in December/winter. He was supposedly born around March or April, but the Romans wanted to overlay the holiday of their new religion with the Pagan holiday – from which they stole many of the typical “Christmas” traditions – to encourage conversion.

        Not to mention the whole “Jesus is born, now here’s Santa Claus” bit has always confused me. LOL
