To celebrate the holiday season, this week’s quote is from Dr. Seuss’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Always talented at weaving adult themes in his poetic children’s books, the Grinch is no exception, tackling the rampant commercialization of Christmas.
Enjoy, and joy to the world!
“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
