December Deadline met and a Sneak into January

I have finished the first column and added the strips.  I accidentally added strips to the right hand side (oops) so left them and did another set for the left.  Here is my "holidays" block - but since I also like getting away for any reason I changed it - well why wouldn't I??

(The pictures are of the places I like to go.)

And here is my completed strip.
