Grinch-for-hire service says it has seen surge in enquiries since trashing mum's house

Business is good for the Grinch that wrecked Christmas

The company that sent out the Grinch who wrecked someone's home has claimed to have seen a surge in requests since the story went viral.


Santa Stop Here Belfast sent out a staff member dressed as the Grinch. While you might expect a few of the characters phrases and mannerisms to make an appearance, this Grinch apparently chose to instead wreck the customer's home, pour liquids everywhere, and smash eggs across the house.

However, the company claims she knew exactly what she was getting into. While the customers long ranting Facebook post certainly caught the eye of just about every news outlet, the event company claims that business has actually increased.

A spokesperson for the company told the Mail Online: “[The homeowner’s] sister hired us and was told in advance what was involved prior to the visit.

“We’ve done 30 visits this year with no complaints. We have been doing this for three years in total.


“Our Grinch is loving the attention - we’ve had hundreds of booking enquiries today. The Grinch also knew them personally - but hasn’t told them who was below the mask yet!”

But that doesn't detract from the previous mayhem, and presumably, the original customer is still livid.

The original Facebook post reads: “So paid £85 for a Grinch visit… advertises the Grinch to come in, mess the kids’ beds, have pillow fights, put toilet roll around your Christmas tree and pictures with the kids at the end (they were told to leave, no pictures) VS what I got, every single bit of party good, expensive cupcakes threw all over the place, tree decorations broke, fairy up liquid poured on my kitchen food, eggs smashed and a full bottle over my floor and son! Kid’s new onesies ruined.

“Highly, highly do not recommend… mailed and complained, no reply. Grinch defo came stole Christmas, never been so disgusted in my life! [sic].”
