About This Quiz

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a children's story which was written by famed author Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. In keeping with his style, the book was written in rhymed verses and also used illustrations drawn by the author. The story tells the tale of the Grinch, a mean and grumpy creature who lives in isolation with his dog Max, who wants nothing more than to put an end to Christmas. 

On the eve of Christmas, he decides to dress up as Santa Claus and steals all of the presents (and in some cases decorations) from the town of Whoville. Despite his efforts, the townspeople still celebrate the holiday and the creature later returns the gifts with the help of Cindy Lou. 

In the year 2000, the book was adapted into a live-action film starring Jim Carrey and is a favorite to watch by children and adults alike during the festive season. A computer-animated version is said to be scheduled for November of 2018 starring Benedict Cumberbatch. But what we want to know is, which of the many kooky characters from this Christmas classic are you most like? Will you turn out to be as grouchy as the Grinch?
