1. How the Grinch stole Christmas
This is a classic by Dr. Seuss. It’s about the Grinch living on the hillside of Whoville.
Grinch hates Christmas and hates that Whoville residents have fun during the holidays.
Grinch put forward the idea to celebrate Christmas from “Whovillians.” He passed each house and stole a Christmas tree, gifts, stockings and the like.
He thinks he’s done the job. But when the Whoville residents wake up, they keep singing in the town square. Because Christmas is not about gifts for Whos, it’s about family and love.
This opened the heart of the Grinch, who then descended to Whoville to apologize and celebrate Christmas with them.
