[[caption-width-right:330: Cover for "Holiday Wars" Volume 1: The Spirit]]

''[[http://www.holiday-wars.com/ Holiday Wars]]'' is an ongoing webcomic which involves each holiday being embodied by a [[AnthropomorphicPersonification physical entity]], and the girl who is caught in the middle of their struggle.

Holidays reflect the current culture of a society and, like a shifting tide, they change. Realizing this, The Easter Bunny declared war on the other Holidays in the hope of gaining the one thing that can guarantee his immortality: The Holiday Spirit. Foreseeing The Bunny's betrayal, SantaClaus hid The Holiday Spirit and marked Tegan Cassidy, a human infant, granting her the ability to find it.

After 16 years of war, nearly all the Holidays have been killed or have joined The Bunny. Led by Earth Day, the rag tag group of observances still fighting, turn to a now-teenage Tegan in the hope that she can lead them to The Holiday Spirit.
