‘You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch’
If you can get through the Christmas season without watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas, well, we aren’t sure how you do it. The film is a classic and we can’t, and wouldn’t want to, miss the Whos in Whoville, the sweet Where Are You Christmas song, or Max all dressed up like a reindeer.
We also wouldn’t want to miss the moment when the Grinch’s heart stops being 3 sizes too small. However, not everyone is so quick to believe that the Grinch is anything but Christmas stopping evil.
One little boy wasn’t taking any risks after watching some videos online. So he took matters into his own hands to make sure Christmas would still be Christmas this year.
He immediately called 911 and told them the ‘little Grinch’ was trying to steal Christmas. The responder thanked him for his tip and asked if adults were around. The little boy’s father immediately apologized, believing his son was just playing on his phone. She was very understanding and not long after, an officer showed up at his home thanking him for his useful information.
Then, he was escorted to see that they’d, in fact, caught the Grinch and he was in a holding cell.
You can listen to the phone call and see the sweet exchange below.

Looks like Christmas is sure to be a success this year thanks to that 5-year-old from Mississippi. With this added dose of a heartwarming tale, we’re more ready than ever to embrace the season’s magic.
