About This Quiz

The Grinch is a fictional character who was first encountered in a children's book called "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" by Dr. Seuss back in 1957. In the book and the adapted films (1957 and 2000), he is described as an ill-tempered, bitter, and selfish green human-like creature who lives on a cliff overlooking the town of Whoville. 

During the Christmas season, the festivities and the cheerful nature of the citizens of Whoville upset him to the point where he decides to ruin everyone's Christmas by disguising himself as Santa and stealing the decorations and presents from everyone in town. 

Because of his actions, real people who dislike this holiday are often referred to as a Grinch, along with Ebenezer Scrooge from "A Christmas Carol." These people loathe Christmas and everything associated with it so much that they go out of their way to either disrupt it or avoid it all together.

How much of a Grinch are you? Do you secretly enjoy the festivities? Do you endure it because of your loved ones, or do you wish that it never existed? If you would like to find out where on the scale of Grinchiness you stand, you should take this quiz!
