Every year, we watch the Grinch. Every year we smile as he puzzles and puzzles until his puzzler is sore.

It came without ribbons.
It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes or bags.

The Grinch can’t understand it.  Under cover of darkness, he had managed to steal the presents, the trees, and the wreaths.  He had taken all the  food for the feast ~ from the last can of Who Hash to the rare Who Roast Beast.

But his nocturnal efforts hadn’t stopped Christmas from coming.  It came. 

Somehow or other, it came just the same. 

I heard the bells on Christmas Day.
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet
The words repeat . . . of peace on Earth, good will to men.
