Mini Review Monday – Merry Grinchmas

I’m trying out a new series! If you’d like to participate, just comment down below. Mini-Review Monday is just that, a mini-review on a Monday. It can be on books, products, or TV shows/movies.

Merry Christmas Eve! Today I’m going to be discussing one of the best Christmas books turned movies ever: How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

I’ve watched this movie every winter since I was little. It is one of my all-time faves, if not my favorite. It’s such a beautiful story filled with the holiday spirit. The cartoon version is great, but nothing beats Jim Carrey as The Grinch.

Growing up, this movie made me laugh before I even understood half of the jokes. I love how dramatic The Grinch is. He is so sassy and unapologetic. The movie also taught me empathy in a nuanced way. It’s riddled with hidden lessons.

I haven’t watched the new one yet, I just can’t bring myself to do it. Maybe next year.

10/10 Would recommend!

How do you feel about The Grinch?
