The Grinch is a cartoon character created by Dr. Seuss in his children’s book entitled, “How The Grinch Stole Christmas!” The book became an instant children’s classic and later in 1966 was made into an animated television special. The Grinch was notorious for his bad attitude and hatred toward all things happy and joyful. Because of this negativity, the term “Grinch” has become synonymous with hating the Christmas holiday season.
The Grinch’s distinctive, almost cat-like face, combined with a slightly human appearance has become infamous. He has bright green fur with a face that resembles something really feline. His yellow cat eyes seem to glow with evil through red pupils. The Grinch is most famous for his really mischievous and evil grin that seems to emulate his complete lack of emotion, and apparently his heart most definitely is “two sizes too small”.
A “Grinch” costume may be just what you are feeling at your next Christmas party, or would also make a hilarious addition to any Halloween or costume party. If you aren’t feeling the Who-manity this year, sporting a loath-ly shade of green under your Santa hat might be the perfect way to get your point across!
