One of my all-time favorite holiday stories and movies is Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch That Stole Christmas” (the original cartoon version is a family favorite). I remember as a child eagerly anticipating the holiday season and the visit from the not-so-friendly Grinch. Now as a parent, I love the message that the movie offers that the holiday season (this or any other holiday season) isn’t all about packages, decorations, etc., but the true meaning is something personal to each and every one of us.
This year during December family activities, I decided I wanted to have a “Who Feast.” I saw a post by Express Yourself Creatively about a Who Pudding recipe. This post also led me to Seussville – a magically website that I haven’t visited in quite a while. While visiting Seussville, I found recipes for Santy Claus Grinch Treats and Who Hash and a noisemaker for the kids to make and use during a reading of the story or a showing of the movie.
Here is the plan for our “Who-liday” evening:
Read “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”
Make Grinch Treats
Have a “Who Feast”
- Roast Beast Sandwiches
- Who Hash
- Grinch Greens (Green Beans)
- Beezlenut Splash (Green Punch – Hirschy Family Tradition)
- Who Pudding (pudding with m&ms)
Watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”
Have a Great Week!
