10th day of christmas

"It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!"... Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!" ~Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

I really do love the the Grinch. He's such a mean, small-hearted, old, green wart of a creature. And yet, somehow, the Christmas spirit reaches him and changes his heart. Even without references to Baby Jesus and God, this fun fable packs such a wallop of truth.
