The Grinch takes over Universal Studios

UNIVERSAL CITY - Universal Studios will host "The 13 Days of Grinchmas" beginning Dec. 19.Tons of fresh snow will be hauled in for the event, which runs until Dec. 31. A whimsical, curving "Grinchmas" tree will tower 50 feet above the center of a snow-covered winter wonderland and will be lit in a nightly ceremony that will feature a colorfully costumed "Whoville" choir caroling and spreading holiday cheer. The Grinch and his faithful dog Max will be available for photos. Families can romp in a playground of snow and build snowmen. Grinchmas will also provide fans of the blockbuster movie a close-up view of the original Whoville film sets, featured in "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas." As the tram rolls to a stop amid the fanciful Whoville buildings, guests will experience a performance by Whoville's residents re-enacting scenes from the film. For ticket information, visit
