Day 8 - December 8

Celebrate the 25 Days of Christmas


Santa Claus

It's the eighth day of December. Today, it's the Grinch Day. It's Bodhi Day.

December 8 is also Student Day. And, in France, we celebrate the Festival of Lights (Fête des Lumières). Take a look at the reading selection for today.

What do writers say?

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."
- Dr. Seuss
