Christmas Eve! Christmas Eve! Christmas Eve! How excited is everybody right now?
I thought I'd give you a little review filled with festive cheer in the form of my favourite Christmas tale of all time...'How The Grinch Stole Christmas' by Dr. Suess.
It's a tale known by many of the Scrooge-like Grinch, who's lived in a cave on a mountain overlooking the little Whos in the idyllic Whoville. With his tiny cold heart (that was two sizes too small) the Grinch is sick of the Whos and their noisy holiday preparation and even louder and cheerier singing voices, so he's decided he's had enough. He's putting an end to Christmas and stealing all of the Christmas cheer away right from under the Whos noses on Christmas Eve, dressed as Santa Claus himself accompanied by his trusty companion Max.
We all know the ending here...
And the whole message of the book can be summarised with just one line
"What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."
It's a message of goodwill to all and that all the material possessions and presents and fanciful feasts are really nothing compared to spending Christmas with the people you really care about =) Not to mention the fact that it's never too late to let your heart grow for Christmas day.
