2015 Holiday Gift Guide
We all have favorite holiday movies from the time we are little kids until we grow into adults. I can remember as a kid counting down the days until December when I knew the networks would begin showing such great holidays classics such as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, A Christmas Story, and my number one favorite, Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Today, as an adult, I still look forward to the holiday season and watching all of the great classics and new holiday movies with my family. In fact, we enjoy our family holiday movie time so much so that a few years back we actually made it a tradition to buy one favorite holiday movie each year.
This year, we acquired another favorite, one that is actually a remake of my childhood favorite How the Grinch Stole Christmas. You know the one I am talking about, where Jim Cary stars as the Grinch? But this isn’t a regular copy of The Grinch, nope this is actually a special edition, Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinchmas Edition!

Discover the true meaning of the holiday season with the live action adaptation of the beloved classic, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Starring Jim Carrey as The Grinch, director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer reimagine one of the most enduring holiday stories of all time. Why is The Grinch (Carrey) such a grouch? No one seems to know, until little Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen) takes matters into her own hands and turns both Whoville and The Grinch’s world upside down, inside out… and funny side up. Filled with dazzling scenery, special effects, makeup and costumes, this is an adventure “that can make your heart grow three sizes – if you’re not laughing too hard!” (Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
