The past few years, during December, I've done "holiday special" sales in the Seer's Catalog to boost sales for the month. But I've decided not to do that this year.
Between Black Friday, Black Thursday, and the barrage of "WE'RE HAVING A HOLIDAY SALE!" emails I've been receiving from every major retail store I've ever shopped at, the consumerism of December has really hit me this year and I don't want to be a part of it.
Whichever holiday you celebrate, this time of year should be about giving, not about receiving the best deals on retail items.
So in the spirit of that, instead of trying to get you folks to buy more stuff from me, I'm going to be donating money out of my own pocket to various charities, such as RAINN, the RED CROSS and the ASPCA. If it's within your budget to give to these or other charities, please do so.
You all have already given me so much love and support over the past decade. I feel in these final months of the comic it would be greedy of me to ask for anything more from you.
That's all from me for now.
