It's cold outside. The days are shorter. The holidays coming up mean that you are probably stressing out over travel, seeing family members you may or may not loathe and spending lots of money on presents. Let's all face it; Christmas time can really suck, emotionally.

But don't worry about all that, because adorable Shaylee is here to bring the holiday spirit back into your life. Shaylee is five years old and deaf, so her version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas is in American Sign Language (ASL). We can't remember the last time a holiday story made us smile so much. It could be because Shaylee is wearing her hair like Cindy Lou, but it's mostly because she is so into how she tells the story. She is so expressive with her sign-language and facial expressions. Plus…that Cindy Lou hair!

Basically, this is the only Christmas-themed GIF you'll need for the rest of the year:

And now your heart is three sizes bigger. Just like Mr. Grinch. Thank you Shaylee Lou Who!

She also has an ASL version of "The Night Before Christmas" that you can watch once you are in the mood for more holiday cheer directly from Shaylee.
