Happy Holidays to you & your fine family. Now we literally call upon the spirit of Classics Illustrated Comics aficionados, my late mother, Mrs. June C. Koopmans, B. Ed., of Grade II at Afton Elementary School & her father Thomas Archibald "Archie" Adams on mom's favourite day of the year for a lesson plan. It is times such as Christmas Day that you bring out the very best of them all! Besides Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth The IInd works Christmas Day, shouldn't The Queen Of Christmas to?!
