How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Suess

Ok, now I know you had to have read this story when you were a child. An adorable Grinch (yes I said that), who does not want anything to do with Whoville. And of course, a curious child who becomes obsessed with the Grinch, wants to be friends with them, and does not want to believe that someone can be so mean.

I mean, seriously. Even you have to admit, that the Grinch, is freaking adorable. I am a fan of the classic cartoon, and of course, the Jim Carrey version (I have both hehehe).

I used to have the story, but of course, I lose it through the many moves. Every year, I want to grab a copy of this beloved story, but I always forget. I haven’t even unpacked my favorite Christmas movie yet, just to have the tradition of at least watching one of the renditions of this story. I just love it.

Dr. Suess is a genius, and I have always loved the way his stories were written. You can be 100 years old, and you will still feel like a kid again just reading the story again.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Who does not love a classic Christmas story? Even one that has been told through different prints and different movie variations (and sometimes, television shows).

A Christmas Carol is a timeless story that I believe everyone should read at least once in their lifetime. It really gives you a different look at life, and know that you cannot take life for granted.

People come and go. People may have a different point of view of you. Who are really there for you, and who is not.

Basically, life is short. Don’t take advantage of others, and everyone is not perfect, but everyone bleeds the same.

Charles Dickens has written many stories, but I believe A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite books based on Christmas.
