“By creating a story which successfully addresses materialism in the Christmas celebration as a central issue, Geisel has managed to neutralize one of the paramount accusations leveled against the popular Christmas...So long as the material decoration, exchange, and feasting of Christmas remain linked to the social ideal of humanitarianism, the festival of Christmas is socially significant and valuable.” From “Dr Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas: Its Recent Acceptance into the American Popular Tradition” by Thomas A. Burns
