Scooby says Christmas comes in a box! No, Scooby. There is much more to Christmas than Boxes.
This is one of my favorite posts for Christmas 2013. Few people saw it then as this blog was new, so I shall put it up again today. Maybe it will become a classic! Or maybe not.
What happened to the chair? It has been torn to pieces! This is not what I want to see in the morning.
“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?”
