Final Verdict

Our favorite fictional character, first featured by Dr. Seuss and later fantastically performed by Jim Carrey, gives us a big reality check. It forced us to ponder what’s the real meaning of Christmas. It made several realize that Christmas is not just about exchanging gifts but spending as much time as they can with their loved ones.

Dr. Seuss beautifully illustrated the message as the “Whos don’t let The Grinch ruin Christmas, and celebrate it despite their stolen gifts”. The shift in Grinch’s attitude towards the idea of celebrating Christmas represents his change of heart. While he hated Christmas at the beginning of the movie, he gladly joins in with the holiday activities by the end of the movie.
