Hello lovely readers!!
Today we are having another fun friday four!
The Grinch (2018)
Ahhhhh!!! My favorite christmas movie of all time!!! OF ALL TIME! Who agrees?
This lovely, heart-warming, funny, touching and even RHYMING movie, based on a book by Dr. Seuss has captured the hearts of both young and old for many years.
Of course, it’s about a very grumpy unsocial creature called the GRINCH, who HATES CHRISTMAS. One year, he decides that something should be done. He creeps into the town and destroys their christmas. But in the morning, to his surprise…. they still celebrate by singing! That’s another thing he hates- singing. He is touched by the singing, and he becomes friends with a sweet little girl (whose only christmas wish is for her mother to be happy… because she is always busy. isn’t that so sweet?).
Soon…. the grinch makes it the best christmas ever!
Btw, he has such a CUTE PUPPY named Max!!
For featured fiction…..
I would love to know, do you know any great christmas books? If you do, PLEASE do share it in the comments! I’m sure we all would love a great christamassy read!
Some beautiful bible verses… and stay for the book recommendation at the end 😉
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson
This is a simple, short (150 pages) but funny and nonsensical story, about the six Herdman siblings, the meanest roughest kids that ever lived. Every christmas, a pageant was arranged. But one year, the head of the management fell sick. Everyine thought that the pageant would be ruined. To everyone’s great surprise, the Herdman’s volunteered to join.
While asking about the story of the nativity, the Herdman children ask all kinds of questions… which opened everyone’s eyes to the reality…. it was not just a cozy story…. e.g., that the innkeeper forced a pregnant woman and her baby to sleep in a barn, and the Holy Family were on the run from Kind Herod, who wanted the baby Jesus killed.
Everyone expected something terrible to happen at the performance…. they were not dissapointed! But it was much more different and touching that they had expected…. and they all had to agree that it had been the BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER.
That’s all for today’s post!! I hope you enjoyed!
P.S. A little update….. our family has COVID…. but don’t worry, we all are geting better 🙂 I myself, have not got it I think…. no symptoms yet, thank God. 😀
Thank you so much for reading! Stay safe! Toodles!
