How the Grinch Confused Christmas
Overview
The Grinch has changed. This year, he wants to celebrate Christmas, but the trouble is, he doesn’t know how. In his excitement, he gets a little bit confused. He starts sending presents to Santa, wearing the stockings on his feet and mixing up other Christmas traditions.
