This Christmas - Don't be a Grinch


Do you know the story about Grinch and his attempt to steal the Christmas?!

The Grinch is a hairy green creature who absolutely hates Christmas

He lives in the caves north of a town of Christmas lovers called the "Whos". 

Whos live in Who-ville, a small town where people had hearts as sweet as sugar.

The residents of Who-ville were so happy about Christmas and did not have one evil thought in their minds. 

But the Grinch has had enough of this Christmas business and he decides to ruin it, for everyone: 

"The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all,
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small."

With a heart that small, there was no way that the Grinch would find any room for happiness.

He waited in his misery for years until he finally came upon an evil idea.  

He decided to do the worst deed of them all, to steal Christmas.

The Christmas Heist

The Grinch decided to play Santa, and go down to Who-ville to steal every present from every house.

He did not stop at that, he stole ornaments, candles, and even Christmas trees. 

He also stole the Christmas food for the feast, the stockings, and everything that Christmas stands for. 

With everything that was stolen he run away happily and waited to see Whos crying or even grieving. 

But he forgot that this was Who-ville, the land of goodness. The people of Who-ville did not care for presents or material trappings. 

Christmas was in their hearts. And without any remorse or sadness, the people of Who-ville celebrated Christmas.

When he saw it the Grinch feelt a twinge of remorse and maybe even a bit of Christmas spirit, so he brought back all the things that he stole.

He arrived in time to join in on the Christmas festivities.

"And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: 'How could it be so?'
It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
It came without packages, boxes or bags!
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore."


Focus on gifting Joy

Each Holiday season we are surrounded by bright and shiny things. Don't forget you can be the brightest and the shiniest thing in someone's life.
