“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 ’til 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.”
– Dr Seuss (How the Grinch Stole Christmas)

Merry Christmas everyone!
I thought I’d make this week’s Quoting the Quill a festive one. How the Grinch Stole Christmas has always been one of my favourite Christmas movies, I’m not really sure why. This quote is the definite stand out moment in the film when the Grinch realises he can’t ruin Christmas by stealing people’s presents because it’s family and friends being together that matters, AWWWH. THE CHEEESE.
Having said that, I still like it because it’s a good little reminder of what matters and well, I’m also a sucker for things that rhyme.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, I hope you have a great day tomorrow, stuff yourselves with lots of delicious food and get a few bookish presents! 🙂
