[edit] Explanation

  • True Christmas comics come out just before, on or after Christmas day on the 25th of December.
    • So far they have all been released between 23rd and 26th of December.
    • There have been two other comics so far released earlier in December.
    • And two more released in different months, that only refereed to Christmas, but was not in themselves Christmas comics.
    • This is listed below in the Not a Christmas comic section.
  • The first Christmas after xkcd began, there were no releases a month around Christmas.
    • But since then there has been at least one Christmas related comic every Christmas.
    • And when the 25th has been an official release day, it has since then always been a Christmas comic.
    • The release date has never been moved, though, to accommodate a release on the 25th.
  • In 2009 both comics around Christmas were Christmas comics.
    • This has happened 5 times up till and including 2015.
