Grinch night

Plot

In Whoville, on a night known as "Grinch Night", which commences when a "Sour-Sweet Wind" blows and a chain of mevents causes the Gree-Grumps and Hakken-Krakks to annoy The Grinch  into terrorising the Whos. Later, Euchariah, a polite little Who with a slight astigmatism, goes to use the outhouse (referred to as "the euphemism" in the story), but is swept away to Mt. Crumpit by the wind.

On the road he encounters the Grinch, who is busy picking Bricklesout of his fur after failing to hunt down the "Wuzzy Woozoo". Along with the Grinch's dog, Max , who is in the process of bringing a large wagon — called the "Paraphernalia Wagon"— down to Whoville. Euchariah decides to stall the Grinch from reaching Whoville. After some persistence Euchariah, the Grinch tricks him into getting a strange trance in the Paraphernalia Wagon.

Inside the wagon, Euchariah is confronted by psychedelic and surreal imagery, numerous monsters  and the Grinch's mocking voice. Though scared out of his wits, Euchariah bravely keeps on his toes long enough for the Sour-Sweet Wind to die down, thus forcing the Grinch to pack up and retire to his cave. Max on the other hand, who had been abused and overworked by the Grinch, goes home with Euchariah. Back in Whoville, the residents (including Euchariah's grandfather Josiah and his grandmother Mariah) celebrate the little Who's courage in preventing the Grinch releasing the Paraphernalia Wagon's full horrors on their town and up in the mountains the Grinch, who is hauling the wagon home himself, ominously notes that one day there will be another Grinch Night when the Sour-Sweet Wind blows once more
