"Grinchmas" time is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood as it prepares to ring in the festive season with a traditional white Christmas and a not-so-traditional green Grinch, tons of fresh snow, encounters with Cindy-Lou Who and Max the Dog and a "Whoville Whobilation" at the original movie sets where the classic "Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" was filmed.

The 13 Days of "Grinchmas" will be celebrated at Universal Studios Hollywood from Dec. 19 through the 31 and is included in the price of theme park admission. More information, including holiday promotional offers, is available at

A whimsical, curving Grinchmas tree will tower 50 feet above the center of a snow-covered Grinchmas 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 on hand to meet fans and take memorable holiday photos. Families will also be able to enjoy traditional winter fun, romping together in a playground of snow and building their own snowmen.

"Grinchmas" will also provide fans of the blockbuster movie a close-up view of the original "Whoville" film sets, featured in the classic "Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas," aboard the world-famous behind-the-scenes Studio Tour. As the tram rolls to a stop amid the fanciful "Whoville" buildings, guests will experience a one-of-a-kind performance by "Whoville's" residents re-enacting favorite scenes from the film.
