I apologize for the inconsistent quality of these scans, some of the pages in my copy of this comic are a bit faded...
This story is from Santa Claus Funnies, so it's possibly the one story missing from many people's collections of Pogo comics. It's a very funny story highlighted by some great dialog, and features one of Kelly's running gags, Albert's belief that he has become a cannibal by accidentally eating a child he was supposed to be watching.
Here is "Albert and Pogo's Christmas" from Santa Claus Funnies (Four Color) #254 (1949):
Bless you for running this story; it's a Pogo story I've never seen before.
Love the great work you do on your blog.

Thanks, Pappy! Like you, I'm also a big Pogo fan, but hadn't seen this story until a few years ago myself. I figured there were lots of folks who'd never seen it either.
