Yeah. It's pretty popular, the storyline, but I don't know that many people can actually name it, or its author.
I could be wrong, though.

Aaaand I noticed at the last 3 panels, which other people don't seem to care about, that Dipper is blushing.

It's usually the little things that matter :)
Being hugged by people we care about tends to elicit warm feelings :)

I think this and "A Christmas Carol" are two of the most popular (some might say overdone) sitcom storylines come the Christmas season. Even I got into the act a couple seasons back.

I see a reference involving some girl selling her hair to give her husband some stuff and then the dude selling his stuff for a comb for his wife... Or something.

This reminds me of that one episode of Rugrats, "The Santa Experience", where Phil trades his Reptar doll to Angelica for a box of crayons. And Lil trades her coloring book for a Reptar space helmet.
