I recently had the amazing opportunity to attend the kick off of Universal Studios Hollywood’s Holiday Celebration Grinchmas and they kicked it off with the presentation of the Who-Manitarian of the Year Award to the Amazing Betty White! The famous actress and animal activist was all smiles and looking good as she received her award.
She was presented with the award by the Citizens of Who-ville and by none other than the Grinch and Max the dog! Max the dog is actually played by local rescue dogs in the Grinchmas show through out the Grinchmas season at Universal! How amazing is that!
It was nice to see a 100 inner city kids were chosen to attend the Who-Manitarian award ceremony as they got the opportunity to play in the real snow! A rare thing here in southern California!
As you can see the kids were having a blast in this amazing real snow. It was a few feet of real snow!
Who says it doesn’t snow in Los Angeles!
The “Grinchmas” celebration will take place until December 31st and it is included in the price of admission. Fresh snow will be around this amazing curving 60 foot Grinchmas tree for each day of Grinchmas and celebrities will be on hand to read the Dr. Seuss classic, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” as part of a nightly tree lighting celebration. You can see Dot Marie Jones (from Glee) on December 31! The tree lighting ceremony will also feature a Who-ville choir and a fabulous Who-bilation performances.
Grinchmas has so many amazing and fun events for the whole family that you really have to check out for the Holidays! You can not only see this amazing Who-Ville celebration, but you can also see the sets featured in the movie Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
The theme park is also beautifully decorated for the Holiday as well!
Universal Studios Hollywood and Grinchmas is the perfect place to visit for the Holidays!
