Welcome to Christmas week in my blog where all posts will have a holiday theme. For monsters I had to go with Dr Seuss and the Grinch.
A Christmas Monster in Green
Did you know that the name Grinch come from the French word grincheux, which means grumpy? Nope, neither did I, thank you Wikipedia for that titbit of information :).

I loved the animation and the voice over and the music. Although there have been live action adaptations of Dr Seuss I think his characters and craziness do lend themselves better to animation. I enjoy Jim Carey in many things and his live action version of the Grinch is great, but I still prefer the cartoon :). How about you?

The Grinch is totally Scrooge, but he goes one further than scrooge, he actually steals Christmas from the Whos of Whoville. How evil, how terrible to steal Christmas!

Of course it's a Christmas story, so it's all about redemption. Well done Whos! And of course it's all about how all the things at Christmas aren't the important part, which I think we all forget from time to time. The holiday season is not about all the presents and all the food, it's about the love and the joy. I hope we all have plenty of those this year.
My must see Christmas movie is A Christmas Carol (all versions ;)), but I do like finding the Grinch on telly as well in all his Scrooge-like glory.
Who is your favourite Christmas monster, the Grinch, Scrooge or an even eviller one (say that when you're been at the Christmas cheer ;))?
