“Blast this Christmas music! It’s joyful and triumphant.”

From: The Grinch

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: The Grinch

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from the live action version of The Grinch, which is based on the Dr. Seuss book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” As they had to fill in the extra time needed for a full theatrical release, the live action movie added more scenes and story arcs, such as the Grinch’s origins and how he came to hate Christmas.

The quote comes during the scene where The Grinch (played by Jim Carrey) is fast asleep. However, the citizens of Whoville (who love Christmas) are playing Christmas carols. The Grinch starts to sing in his sleep and he awakes in fear as he realizes what he’s doing. This is when the Grinch utters the quote.

Geek wisdom: Once in a while you will get the Holiday doldrums. When you don’t really feel like celebrating the season to be jolly. Actually, there is nothing wrong with that. However, just because you’re not in the spirit, that doesn’t give you the right to try to stop others from enjoying themselves.
