The Grinch is the classic Dr. Seuss tale of a bitter, cave-dwelling, green, creature with a heart "two sizes too small." He lives with his faithful dog, Max, on snowy Mount Crumpit just north of Whoville, home of the Whos. Every year, the Grinch can hear the noisy Christmas festivities of Whoville. Envious of the Whos' happiness, he decides to steal their Christmas presents, holiday roast beast and decorations to "prevent Christmas from coming." Instead of keeping the Whos from their holiday joy, the Grinch learns the true meaning of Christmas. Join Diane and guests as they discuss this holiday favorite.
