- A day for all Grouches to celebrate their way of life. A Grouch's mission in life is to be as miserable and grouchy as possible, and pass that feeling on to everyone else. Only then will a Grouch feel in touch with his or her world and be happy.

Such is the stability of a Grouch's life: so balanced, and yet so unbalanced. Source
