This is one of my favourite Christmas "quotes" and it's a useful one for the kids to think about, whether they know the story of Dr Seuss's Grinch or not.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
“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!”
