With visions of falling leaves and Thanksgiving turkeys fading into the rearview, it’s certainly beginning to look a lot like…Grinchmas?
Although it started on Thanksgiving, Grinchmas will kick off in earnest on Saturday, Dec. 7 and continue on through the rest of the month at the entertainment capital of Los Angeles, Universal Studios Hollywood. In addition to Saturday the 7th, Grinchmas will take place on 12/8, 12/14, 12/15, and then everyday from 12/20-12/31.
On the days that the Grinch invades Universal Studios Hollywood, visitors can expect to celebrate the “Wholidays” by watching the Whos dance through Whoville while spreading holiday cheer and singing along with the Who-Carolers. Guests will also have the opportunity to take photos with the Grinch, his dog Max and pose for a shot beneath the 60-foot-tall Grinchmas tree in Universal Plaza. Universal Studios Hollywood will be extensively decorated in festive decor in order to make the Grinchmas as authentic as possible.
Taking advantage of Grinchmas at Universal Studios Hollywood isn’t the only way that you can get a taste of Tinseltown this holiday season.
