..And the Grinch with his Grinch feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling & puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes or bags!
And he puzzled & puzzled til his puzzler was sore!
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before;
What if Christmas he thought doesn't come from a store?
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?
- - Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas - -

Jes
