How the Grinch stole Thanksgiving

Every Who Down in Who-ville Liked Thanksgiving a lot...

But the Grinch,Who lived in the company accounting department, Did NOT!
The Grinch hated Thanksgiving! The whole Thanksgiving season! Now, you ask why?
No one quite knows the reason. It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. But I think that the most likely reason of all may have been that his pocketbook was two sizes too small.

Whatever the reason, His pocketbook or his shoes, He stood there on November 1st, hating the Whos, Staring down from his cave with a sour, Grinchy frown At the decoration less windows below in their town. For he knew every Who down in Who-ville beneath should be busy now hanging a mistletoe wreath.

"They’re not hanging their stockings!" he snarled with a sneer, "Not until after Thanksgiving! No Christmas shopping here!" Then he growled, with his Grinch fingers nervously drumming, "I MUST find some way to stop Thanksgiving from coming!"

So, the Grinch stood there, with his fingers drumming awhile,
And then the Grinch, began to smile.
For the Grinch had an idea.
An awful idea!

And so Christmas started right after Halloween. Thanksgiving was never again to be seen!

….I had the pleasure of partially viewing the season’s very first showing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas at approximately 6:30 p.m. tonight. It’s November 12th and Christmas is here! Lord help us all.
