Your Heart Will Grow Two Sizes After Visiting The “Hou-Ville” Indoor Christmas Village In Texas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a quintessential holiday film, and one Texas city is putting its very own spin on the fictional town of Whoville this holiday season. Downtown Houston has been transformed into “Hou-Ville,” a whimsical world filled with Texas-sized toys, festive photo-ops, and even appearances by the Grinch himself.
