BLYTHEWOOD – If the Grinch was determined to ruin Christmas for the children in Blythewood last weekend, he failed miserably. He made several appearances around town over three days, including seeing the Blythewood High School cheerleaders off to the state championship qualifier competition on Friday and on Sunday entertained at the children’s playground at Doko Park. Everywhere he went, kids ran to him hugging, high-fiving and clamoring to pose for photos with him.
