With Grinchmas In July, Sydneysiders caught Glimpses Of The Grinch Attempting To Steal All The Christmas Fun From Carnival Spirit!

As Aussies across the country celebrate Christmas in July, Carnival Cruise Line today marked the official eve of the mid-winter season (24 July), Grinchmas Eve, with a thrilling spectacle across Sydney Harbour.

In an unexpected sight for Sydneysiders and cruisers, The Grinch dramatically winched himself from a helicopter above Sydney Harbour, in an attempt to steal the Christmas fun from Carnival Spirit.

After his fearless drop from the helicopter, Carnival cruisers then caught sight of The Grinch this morning causing chaos onboard the ship; pinching the Captain’s hat, hiding the turkey and stealing lollipops from the Cherry on Top sweet shop.

Today’s visit was an unexpected secret mission, but The Grinch will return for surprise appearances throughout Carnival’s Christmas cruises.

With over 45 activities to enjoy onboard each day, the fastest and steepest waterslide at sea – Green Thunder – and multiple live entertainment venues, in the end even the The Grinch couldn’t resist turning his frown upside down, dancing along to all of the fun he was witnessing onboard.

The Grinch has now made his way on-board Carnival Spirit, making amends with the Captain after stealing his hat and causing mischief.

The two have enjoyed a lovely Grinchmas Eve feast – they told jokes, shared Christmas stories and had FUN soaking up Sydney’s sunshine.

That is the coolest thing I've seen! 😀 You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch! Did you steal the last can of Who hash, too? 😉

Mr. Grinch sure gets around.  I know that it's winter in Australia when it's summer here, but do they really celebrate Christmas in July?  I know we have people here showing Christmas movies and having short sales in July, and we have friends from Australia that we met on a cruise before, but I never asked if they do really celebrate Christmas in July?
