Finally, one of the easiest ways to look like the Grinch at Christmas is to purchase an abominable snowman costume, paint or dye it green, and then throw on a red jacket, a big belt and a classic Santa hat, and you are good to go.
His likeness -- which is a mix of human and ogre -- first appeared in the book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, which later became a popular holiday television special by the same name.
Based on the book by Dr. Seuss, the classic movie scene involves the Grinch coming to his good sense and giving Christmas back to all of the Whos.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss is a fun story to read and to hear.
