Down in Who-ville
Liked Christmas a lot…
But the Grinch,
Who lived just North of Who-ville,
The sour green character known for a “heart two sizes too small” was spotted in Omaha this weekend, but surprisingly, he wasn’t there to put a stop to Christmas festivities – he actually helped kick things off.
The Salvation Army of Omaha launched their Tree of Lights Campaign on Friday, and the Grinch himself flipped the switch to light the massive shining tree.
Find more photos of the Grinch and the Tree of Lights Campaign kickoff ceremony at facebook.com/treeoflights or give.salvationarmy.org.
The money raised by the Campaign each holiday season funds a range of Salvation Army services in the Omaha area throughout the year, benefiting families, children, the homeless, seniors, and disaster survivors.
Who knew Who-ville’s villain would woo Omaha too?
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!”
And what happened then…?
Well…in Who-ville they say
That the Grinch’s small heart
Grew three sizes that day!
