#663 – Secret

The destructive part of tearing open the presents added to the excitement of Christmas morning. The mystery was finally over as the uniform pattern of the paper was replaced with the blatant graphics underneath that announced the true contents of the package. They were all held in great wonder. Unless it was the dreaded generic department store box. That always lead to the one fear held in every child’s heart. New clothing.

    (: nice.

    it’s always fun to put something in a box in a box in a box etc. n newspaper makes great wrapping, painted or otherwise.

    Those stupid flimsy cardboard boxes that obviously contained a new ugly sweater or something, ugh. I’ve NEVER received anything in that type of box that was actually alright, either it didn’t fit or was just too hideous.

    I liked new clothes. They never feel the same again after you wash them.

    I wrapped a spare Lego set. It wasn’t TOO oddly shaped, but it came out looking like a giant loaf of bread.

    :O Hate getting those generic boxes…they are the devil!

  8. Morzikei says:

    No new clothes(it’s practical, and Christmas for me is lots of candy, a good book, a game or maybe a wireless PS2 controller), and the excitement always was pulling the gifts out of a bag…

  14. sammi says:

    When I couldn’t find wrapping paper, I just took an old pair of jeans, sliced them up and used them. It looks kinda white trash but it gets the job done.

    This Xmas let`s be politically correct.

    May some non-descript entity bless us….everyone.


    Ah forget that..


    And since i`m a Messianic Jew.

    Merry Christmas! I gots new headphones, so I won’t end up like Biff and his blue porcupine pillow ^^. Yesh, those department store boxes are EVIL.

  22. Graceofbass says:

    I actually like the nondescript department store boxes. I got some cute sweaters and a really jaunty hat.

  23. Eltharrion says:

    Hopefully you guys enjoyed holydays (wait, is it written with double-y or i-y?) and enjoy also the new year festivies.

    On other hand, I got a new bow and arrows. Now I can start practicing again. And no, not like Biff.

  24. randomperson says:

    Merry Biffmas Peoples!!!!!!!

  25. MaskedMan says:

    My son LOVES new clothes – He’s 4. But we buy him fun clothes.

    For some packages, spraypaint might well be the best possible choice.

  26. thinkaboutit says:

    Merry Christmas!!

    @DTanza: no he didn’t, he wasn’t even born in december, no serious theologian, or anybody of the faith for that matter, believes that, in all actuality he was probably born sometime in the autumn most likely august or september, the church invented christmas to spread the gospel to the gentiles(anybody who is not a jew) because this is when they normally would celebrate their winter solstice (a pagan festival), youll find that most of the christian holidays have a similar story, but in any case Jesus was a JEW so he observed all of the jewish holy feasts and whatnot so…hanukkah…yeah… but since he was the son of God he knew this would wind up a holiday at any rate so yeah what was i saying again?… yeah thats right:

  28. Wizard says:

    Hmm… That would probably look better than my usual job of wrapping…

  29. Micah says:

    Heh. I got a new shirt from my sister, but it has Boba Fett on it, which made it worth it. And it was in one of those boxes.

  30. alecho says:

    hahaha! First time coming here and I think your comics is awesome! btw, I should’ve done that… instead of wrapping the presents in newspaper.

  31. skiine says:

    I work in a pharmacy, so of course everyone wanted their gifts wrapped before chirstmas. You have to learn quickly or the customers give you hell. *shakes fist at lazy people*

  32. Vera12 says:

    At my house when we do Christmas with my Dad’s side of the family after we’re finished unwrapping the presents we have a giant paper fight. My sister’s boyfriend’s were dumbstruck the first time they came to Christmas with us.

  33. wisp says:

    i discovered a GREAT use for those slim department store clothing boxes. go buy one of those papery fabric and wire yard decorations that can be smooshed flat and spring right back up, flatten it, place in box, tape shut, and watch (from a safe distance) when a friend or relative opens said boobie trapped box ^_^ great fun

    I love doing multiple layers of boxes/packaging for presents.

    One of my husband’s gifts this year is 3 DVDs, individually wrapped, inside the Amazon box that 2 of them came in, wrapped, inside a gift bag. 🙂 (And yes, followed the link here from Biff’s 2009 Christmas strip.)

    Oh crap that toaster better not be infused with some kind of snake DNA.

  36. Shali says:

    My family, more often then not, has to put the gift in another box before we can wrap it. Most often, the gift is shaped…. Difficultly.
