This Cheeky Grinch-Themed Christmas Tree Has Us Saying 'Oh The Who-Manity!'

Caitlyn Clancey 27 Nov 2020

Look, I'm going to be honest with y'all — I have no interest in putting up some plain-jane, ho-hum, no-fun Christmas tree this year. After all we've been through these last several months, I think we deserve better than that. In fact, I know we do.

So instead of breaking out the "Baby's 11th Christmas" ornaments, the gaudy trinkets your mother-in-law gives you ever year, or the cheap baubles you bought last-minute from the Dollarstore, how about we spice things up a little bit?

Let's take Christmas and turn it into Grinchmas.

If there's anyone who knows a thing or two about going way over the top, it's the Grinch.

Don't believe me? Okay, let's consider the events of his story, shall we?

This guy gets so fed up with the Christmas season that he builds a fully-functioning sleigh, sews a costume so he can dress up like Santa Claus, and spends an entire night going from house to house in Whoville, stealing presents, decorations, and raiding their pantries. He event went down a few chimneys!

I'm pretty sure he could have just broken into homes and done the exact same thing without the costume, the props, and all the pageantry, but where's the fun in that?

Even the most legendary loather of all things Christmas knows this season is all about being extra, and that's exactly what this Grinch-themed tree is.

I'll admit that when I first saw this thing, I immediately pictured myself stumbling my way into the living room at 1 a.m. on Christmas morning with a glass of wine in my hand, ready to put the presents under the tree, only to find a green, Grinchy bum waiting for me.

And I can definitely pictured myself having a wine-induced mini freak-out, until I remember the Grinch isn't real and that's just stuffing.

But let's take a moment to really appreciate how unbelievably over-the-top and amazing this Christmas tree is.

First, you've got all the decorations. They're big, loud, and totally obnoxious — definitely the kind of ornaments you could expect to find on a Christmas tree in Whoville.

But then you've got the star of the show himself, Mr. Grinch, waist-deep in the tree as he prepares to fire it up the Chimney to his awaiting sleigh of stolen goodies.

That is, if a sweet-natured Who-girl doesn't wake up and press "Santa" for some answers first.

If you've got the imagination (and the patience) to create this sort of Grinchy masterpiece yourself, I highly suggest you do.

Like I said, I really think we should all go big this year. 2020 hasn't done any of us any favors, and maybe we're going into the holiday season feeling like a bunch of grumpy Grinches ourselves. So let's embrace that and really make our trees stand out!

More than that, let's make this a Christmas to remember during the year that we all just want to forget.
