A Christmas party where everyone gets in a circle and takes turns reading a page from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. There is probably beer involved, and maybe later a game or two of Pictionary. A Christmas tree lends its twinkle and fills the house with pine scent. Carols waft from the stereo.

For read-aloud laughs, you may substitute "Jew" or "Hoe" for "Who". Anyone who can convincingly impersonate Boris Karloff's reading should get an extra (gingerbread) cookie.
