No single snowflake is the same. Here, I'll tell you the story of one special snowflake, within this snowflake are the who's, the who's live in no other then... WhoVille. Spiffmas is the most spectacular time of the year in WhoVille, all of the who's line up to buy toys, send presents to family, and most of all, prepare their houses for the one, the only, Santa Clause.
Now, there was one "Who" who lived in on the top of "Mount Who" who was different from other who's. He hated Spiffmas, people called him "The Grinch". He was a green.. well, Grinch! There is no other way to describe him.. Only the bravest of people went up to the mountain, and they even fell down the mountain with fear. He also had a trusty side-kick! Well maybe not a side kick, but a cute dog, named Max.
He hated Spiffmas because of one day in school when he was younger he was teased by the soon to be mayor of Who-Ville. "Your 7 and already have a beard!" He said. The Grinch was in love with a girl by the name of Martha May Whovea (Who-V-A). During a secret Santa he was supposed to make her a present, and he made her an angel out of household items, It was great for being put together in one night! The Grinch went into his bathroom and looked at himself in the mirror. He thought about the boy saying that he already had a beard and his teacher saying to look his best. He took a shaver and shaved his face.
The next day in school, he showed up with a bag on his head. He had a bad shave job. His face was all cut up. The children in his class laughed at him. He threw Martha's present on the ground. He shouted "I HATE SPIFFMAS!" and threw the Christmas tree to the ground. All of the children were in shock and ran away. Martha just sat and watched. As the Grinch looked at what he did, he saw Martha. Their eyes just seemed to look at each other and then the Grinch left. Martha picked up her angel he made for her and looked at it, she kept it.
Meanwhile, down in WhoVille, loud music and cheering sounded, preparing the countdown until Christmas. One small Who, Cindy-Lu-Who, worried about the Grinch while the other who's thought of him as a mean, soul-less, GRINCH!
"Daddy? Why do people hate him so much?" Cindy asked her father as he sorted mail into correct boxes. "Well Cindy, We all have had our share with him, he liked to ruin Spifftmas for everyone!" "Well maybe I can make that change!" She said to him. "Well, good luck with that, but don't go up to that mountain!" Mr. Lu-Who said.
"4 DAYS UNTIL SPIFFMAS!" The mayor shouted. The crowds broke out into song "Counting down the Spiffmas clock, Spiffmas Clock.."
"Counting down the Spifftmas clock, 4 days left. BAA!! ITS STUCK IN MY HEAD!" The Grinch shouted while sitting in his bed. "The music is to joyful and triumphant!" he said. Max, his dog sat looking at him. "What are you looking at Maxy?" He said. Max looked at him. The Grinch looked down at WhoVille from the edge of the mountain top. "Disgusting." He saw people dressed in green and red.
The Grinch had a heart that was three times smaller then anyone Else's. He hated the Christmas holiday because as a young boy he was raised by two older ladies who loved Spifftmas. After the day in school, the Grinch decided to run away and moved to the top of the mountain.
Later on that day the Grinch was in his lair, he opened up a hatch and slid down to WhoVille landing in piles of trash. He wore a wacky mask and a long brown cape covering his body, head, and legs. "Merry Christmas!" A man shouted to him. "yea yea.. you too.." The Grinch said murmuring to himself. The Grinch was up to no good like always. He entered through the back of the mail building. He mixed up all of the letters sent to everyone. "What's this?" He said sarcastically. He picked up a pile of mail. "Jury duty? OH MY FAVORITE! Junk mail!" He took a few steps away from the cubbies. "Jury duty for you... and you and you and you!" He said as he threw letters into random bins. "Jury duty, junk mail, jury duty, jury duty. OH I LOVE SPIFFMAS DON'T YOU?" he said laughing.
"Cindy, can you help daddy out and go get a present labeled 'For Mr. Jones' please?" "Sure dad." She said. She walked to the mail room to see a shocking surprise. The Grinch saw her as well. "EEK!" The Grinch screamed. "Yourr.... the...the..the..." Cindy began to say. "The...the....THE GRINCH!!!" The Grinch finished.
The Grinch needed a way to escape. He thought of it! In his one hand was wrapping paper and in the other tape and a bow. "NOW HOLD STILL!" the Grinch screamed. He went around in a circle and tied Cindy-Loo-who up like the biggest Christmas present you had ever seen. The Grinch left the seen as he went through another shoot hidden as a trash can back up to his lair. At this point Cindy's father walked in. "CINDY?" "MMM!!!!!" she yelled. "CINDY WHAT DID YOU DO?" Her father said as he UN-tied her. "It wasn't me! It was the Grinch!" she explained. Her father laughed. "The Grinch would never come down here! Now thanks for your help but I think your mother needs it more at home."
Meanwhile up in the mountains the Grinch was once again getting ready to come down to Whoville to ruin some more things. Once he was down in the village of Who, Cindy saw him once again. This time she just kept walking by. The Grinch, taking food from the bakery went over to a trash can and jumped in. Cindy paid attention to what he did. After there was no longer a sign of him, she went into the trashcan herself. She was sent shooting left, right, upside down, until she landed in a pile of trash bags. She reached the top of Mount Who.
She walked into his lair, and saw the Grinch in his bed talking to Max. So Max, how to ruin Spiffmas this year.. "Mr. Grinch.. Why do you hate Christmas so much?" A voice came from behind a paper divider. "WHAT IN THE SAM HILL WAS THAT?" the Grinch screamed. "It was me.." Cindy said coming out from behind the divider. "How did you get in here?" He said looking for an opening somewhere around his home looking confused. "I snuck up here. Looking for you. I want you to be our Spiffmas Cheer Mister"
"Cindy-Lou said there was going to be a check?" he said. "No I didn't..." She said. "Well never mind that!" Martha May was standing next to the mayor. The Grinch looked at her, and she looked back as though saying with their eyes "I missed you". "Well, since your here, ON WITH THE CONTEST! BRING OUT... THE CHAIR OF CHEER!" the mayor said. The old ladies who raised the Grinch came up and put a sweater on him with blinking letters saying "I ♥ Spiffmas". The Grinch was placed on the chair of chair being bounced over to the pudding contest! The Grinch had pudding going in his mouth from all of the whos. "No please! Its too much!" He said as he laughed. The Grinch was having a good time for once! A fruitcake contest went the same way. He lead the Christmas Conga line, and even won in a potato sack race. It came down to the present hand-off, and the Grinch didn't have a gift! As it went around he was trying to think what to give to Martha May. When it got his turn he gave her a watch. "WAIT, THAT'S MINE!" The mayor said as he took it back. The Grinch was surprised the see the mayor got him a gift. He opened it and was so happy. Within the box was a shaver.
The Grinch started to fill with anger. To make it worse. The mayor got on one knee and asked Martha if she wanted to marry him. He offered Martha a brand new car as well. Martha took the ring and the car. The Grinch scratched the side of the car making the most terrible noise! "Spiffmas isn't just about the gifts he said. Its about the... MISTLETOE!" He said as he turned around and held the mistletoe up to his butt. The town started to run away. The Grinch was being his Grinch-self again. He took an old mans drink and with a blow torch blew to the tree making the Spiffmas tree in the town go up in flames. The Grinch had ruined Spiffmas once again. He went down the trash shoot back to his house. He thought he has ruined Spiffmas once and for all but he heard in the distance "He can't ruin our Spiffmas, that's why we have a spare tree!"
The Grinch took presents from everyone in the village, He had his sleigh and stealing all of the toys from every little girl and boy. He arrived at the last house and with a grin said "I've done it Max! I've ruined Christmas!" Max looked at him. The Grinch flew to the top of Mount-Who until morning. He was surprised to hear that instead of crying, he heard singing. "Maybe Christmas isn't about the toys.." He said. "OW!" he yelled. "YEEE-OUCCHHHHHH" He started to cry "MAX, HELP ME, MAX!" Some Who's say, that the Grinch's heart grew three sizes that day. The sled began to slip slowly off of the mountain. "I MUST STOP THE PRESENTS FROM FALLING.." He grabbed the sleigh and pulled his hardest. After pulling, nothing happened. "Well it's only presents, right?" "HEY MR. GRINCH!" Said a voice from the top of the sleigh. "CINDY LOU? WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP THERE!?" "I came to see you, no one should be alone on Spiffmas." "I'm not letting you fall." He said. With all of his might, he picked up the sleigh. With a roar he placed it down unto a safe part of the mountain. "YOU DID IT MR. GRINCH!" Cindy shouted. "Now lets go save Spiffmas!"
And that Spiffmas day, the Grinch held the Who Feast, and he himself cut the roast beast. It just goes to show, that Spiffmas isn't a time of getting gifts, or waiting for Santa, but being kind to others. The Grinch gathered around with the rest of Who-Ville to sing a song around the Spiffmas tree.
Merry Christmas guys, I hope you liked the adventure even though it was kinda long, I've worked hard on it.
