How The Grinch Stole Christmas
By Ken K. Gourdin
Christmas isn’t about what we get. While it is about giving, it is about even more than that. Presents, Christmas trees, Christmas treats, and Christmas feasts are all nice. But Christmas is about even more, still. Theodore Giessel, AKA Dr. Seuss, provides a wonderful reminder of that in his delightful children’s book, How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Here is my – albeit imperfect – reading of this wonderful masterpiece. (Christ accepts even our imperfect gifts; I hope you will accept this imperfect, modest gift of mine.)
As I’ve said several times before (and, who knows? I might even say it a few times more – Hey, that rhymes! I might have a career as the next Dr. Seuss), may we remember The Real Reason for The Season.
