I am enjoying a Christmas movie a day for 25 days. I thought it would be fun to share them here.
About the film (from IMDB):
A grumpy hermit hatches a plan to steal Christmas from the Whos of Whoville.
My Thoughts: I am not going to review this one, because I'm thinking you must know about it. What I do want to do is share why I love this so much.
I loved Max so much. The Grinch's dog Max knew that the Grinch was pretty much a mane ole grouch, but he was loyal to him and loved him anyway. I was pulled in by the hope in Max's eyes, but I also cried for Max as a child. I wanted him to be loved and happy. Seeing the Grinch join all the Whos in Whoville was a delight for me as a child but my biggest delight was seeing Max get the first slice of roast beast.
I loved Boris Karloff. I always had a soft spot for his part as Frankenstein's monster in Frankenstein.
Dr. Seuss was the first author I actively sought out as a child. When my mom was studying to be a realtor, she would take me to the library. I would spend hours there reading his books.
The message that the important thing about Christmas is not what you get but who you are with.
