A 1957 children's book written and illustrated by Creator/DrSeuss, telling the story of a mean spirited, cave dwelling creature called TheGrinch who hates Christmas. He proceeds to pilfer all the Christmas paraphernalia from the perky folks living in Who-ville in an effort to, well, steal Christmas. Although he succeeds, the Whos happily sing their big Christmas song anyway. Realizing the TrueMeaningOfChristmas, the Grinch has a [[HeelFaceTurn change of heart,]] and returns all the loot as the Whos cheerfully welcome him into their community. [[HowTheCharacterStoleChristmas This plot]] has become a StockParody.

* ChristmasCarolers: The one thing the Grinch hates most of all is when all the Whos down in Who-ville gather together, and start caroling around the Christmas tree. This is carried over into the [[WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas animated adaptation]] as well as the [[Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas live action film adaptation]], the latter of which includes a song on the subject by Music/BenFolds called, "Lonely Christmas Eve."
