The Grinch’s Grotto

It’s no secret that everyone is looking for some cheer this holiday season. More than ever, people are looking to the holidays to brighten our spirits in the midst of this crazy year we call 2020. “You’re a mean one 2020!” Bring your Grinchiest self to the Westfield Galleria Mall in Roseville, CA, or other select locations, for an experience with the Grinch.

Near the food court in the Galleria is a Grinch stylized holiday tree and a private Grotto complete with a burlap sack full of presents and a backlit fireplace with hanging stockings and toys. The family and I had a fun time escaping reality for a bit, with a socially distant visit with the Grinch. He took us on a tour of his Grotto, while showing off his many pictures of Max and Cindy Lou.

For your portrait there are several 2020 slogans to choose from, which only enhances the photo and reminds us there is some fun to be had, or goodness up ahead. Sample slogans include, “You’re a mean one, 2020” “2020: Stink, Stank, Stunk,” “2020 – How The Grinch Stole, Well, The Whole Year” and some positive ones including “The Grinch still can’t steal Christmas!” I personally loved the sign we chose, “Our hearts will grow three sizes bigger in 2021.” We can hope, right?
