“How The Grinch Stole Christmas” by Dr. Seuss originally came out in 1957 as a children’s book and was a runaway bestseller with critics calling the Grinch the best Christmas villain since Scrooge. I loved the book as a kid and was so excited when they made it into a TV special in 1966. It’s one of my favorite Christmas TV shows and so since today is Christmas Eve, I’ve found six Grinch links for your clicking perusal. And then there’s the MBIP Coming Attractions below that.
