The sense I got from the "retirement" was that they retired from Batman and Catwoman respectively, and went on the adventure of a "normal" life. The image implies enjoyment and pleasure, but not necessarily happiness.

I'm thinking perhaps it would have worked better with Bruce, Selina and Terry being at home on Christmas, and Terry opening some presents, and then the rest of the family comes to visit. But that's just me, maybe you have a different perspective. Your work is great as always!
Actually I completely understand where you're coming from. In my head, Bruce and Selina do have normal lives back in whatever country they're living in.. but are actually on vacation here in Aruba. I felt like the Bat kids interrupting their daily lives at their actual home or work might be too disruptive and would draw too much attention. But on vacation, they're more incognito. Admittedly, the bat kids wearing their suit colors is irresponsible... but for the sake of the drawing I wanted to be clear on who's who.
