On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me; eleven happy Who’s, ten types of candy, nine Christmas wishes, eight nightmare dogs, seven dancing snowmen, six Christmas parties, five holidays! Four homemade traps, three skellington reindeer, two bad-mouthed con men and a Gremlin who is a cutie!
Much to the disgust of my boyfriends family I had never seen How The Grinch Stole Christmas. So yesterday afternoon I sat down with them to watch their favourite Christmas film.
Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville where every Who knows that the best time of year is Christmas. Just outside of Whoville lives the Grinch, the most Christmas hating creature there ever was. He plans to steal Christmas from the super happy Who’s with the help of his trusty dog Max. All the Who’s are scared of the Grinch, all except one small Who called Cindy Lou, who decides to befriend the Grinch and see if she can make him realise what Christmas is really about.
I can’t believe I have never seen this film before! It’s one of the sweetest, funniest Christmas films I’ve ever seen. It’s bright, colourful and clever and will turn even the smallest of hearts into large caring ones, bursting with Christmas excitement. Plus it tells you what Christmas is really about – spending time with a loving family and simply having a good time. So much like the Who’s, go stuff yourself silly and enjoy good company!
