It was a cold date night
And without a hint of a grimace
I held my husband’s hand
to go to How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
The mean, old Grinch
starts out alone and sore
But your love for him
will grow three times bigger than before.
Of course the Grinch (when we first encounter him, that is) would rather we leave the theater scorning everything about Christmas. That’s precisely what he’s been doing from his icy mountaintop cave for more than half a century. His only companion is his poor pooch Max, a closet Christmas fan and forced accomplice when the Grinch decides he’s going to rob the holiday from his neighbors in Whoville.
