Comments: “Christmas Calamity!” Archie and the gang help Santa save Christmas. Jingles the Christmas Elf does have a way of causing trouble. Then others fix it. He means well just things have a way of not going his way.
“Gift Collection” Archie does collect the gifts for a party at school it’s a grab bag of them. Only he is Archie so of course, things do have a way of getting mixed up. Poor Archie.
“Deck those Halls!” Cheryl Blossom is out to win a Christmas decorating contest and she has her troubles along the way. All of The Christmas decorations look wonderful. The art is gorgeous.
“She’s Makin’ A List..” Veronica has a Christmas gift list for Archie. Giving someone a list of gifts to buy you and telling them they have to get you it is just not in the Christmas spirit of giving. Veronica does get into the Christmas spirit just a little finally. Archie though having to deal with Veronica is left in a not-so-Christmas mood.
“The Unsung Hero” Hotdog is a great dog and yes he does love to help others. Does he get his just desserts? Well, here he gets something even better a Merry Christmas.
These stories are all presented in the Classic Archie style and they will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit.
