She is later shown among the mob wanting to kill Homer for taking their stuff. Although it's just as likely she's upset that Homer took her advice to mean he should rob everyone in town.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Breaking and entering into houses to steal stuff (in this particular case, Christmas presents) equals a pissed-off lynch mob armed with TorchesAndPitchforks, ''not'' people deciding to learn the True Meaning Of Christmas. Homer got ''very'' close to buying it as a result.

* ItsAllAboutMe: Homer before he decides to be a better person. He forgets he's Lenny's secret Santa, annoying both him and Carl. Carl in particularly calls Homer the most selfish man he knows. Homer says that Mr Burns is more selfish than him, leading straight into the RightBehindMe example below. Then, he buys ''keyrings'' for his family's presents and spends almost everything else on the Personalized Talking Astrolabe, meaning the only Christmas tree they can afford is so dry bursts into flames when Homer rubs it. Obviously, Marge and the kids are ''not'' happy when they find out.
