How the Grinch Stole Christmas Movie
Once upon a time, in the magical land of Whoville, there lived a little man named the Grinch (Jim Carrey). The Grinch was different from the townspeople: he was green and hairy, so the Who's teased him all the time. The Grinch took offence at the Who's and made his home high atop Mt. Crumpit where he lived for 30 years. He hated the Who's and Christmas with an equal hatred. Each Christmas with its festivities, decorations, presents and carols was sheer torture to the green hermit. One day the spiteful mountain dweller decided to deprive the Who's of Christmas once and for all. As soon as the carefree Who's went to sleep on Christmas Eve, the treacherous Grinch slunk into the town in order to steal everything associated with their favourite holiday.
