The Grinch

How the Grinch stole Christmas is my very favorite holiday cartoon. Dont ask me why, but thats the one i love. Frosty and rudolph are fun but dont compare to the grinch in my book. And forget the one with real people, it has to be the cartoon version, the other one wasnt very good.

It was on tonite, and since we stayed home from homegroup due to sickies, I was able to watch. I watched mostly with Ezekiel and Zemirah,although a few others wandered in and out. It was a whole new experience watching it with Zemirah. It really was fun listening to her exclamations. She was genuienly concerned that the dog was falling or getting stuck as the grinch took the sled down the hill. Then when they got the bottom and the dog reappeared, she exclaimed with absolute delight "hes unstuck!" It really was cute! She also proclaimed the grinch "scary". Although this is the girl who is scared of a bug :)

Maybe its the fact that the whos celebrate Christmas regardless of the decorations being gone and the presents stolen. While they dont mention Jesus at all in that cartoon, the concept in a much much broader sense is there. That we dont need all the trimmings, wrappings and goodies to celebrate the real reason -- Jesus Christ is born!

    I love A Charlie Brown Christmas for similar reasons. Because it's not about the tree or fancy decorations or parties or any of that. Just the wondrous love of God sending His son to us so we can be reconciled to Him. THAT is the beauty of the season. :)
