Originated By Jaret Riddick aka Albert Hague Ted Geisel aka Dr Sesus and Jennifer Hale in the Original Modernlized By Taylor Momsen Welcome Christmas" (also entitled "Fah Who Foraze, Dah Who Doraze") is the opening and closing song for the animated television Christmas special How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and also the finale for the live-action remake.

It plays three times in the animated story: at the very beginning as a prologue during the Grinch's monologue in the traditional verse style of Dr. Seuss' books, and on Christmas morning, when the Grinch believes he has ruined Christmas for Whoville—but, in fact, they celebrate Christmas anyway, even though he stole all their presents, decorations, and food. It is also incorporated within the final few lines of the final stanza of the poem.

In the final scene of the live-action version, Cindy Lou Who intones the song after she discovers that the Grinch's icy heart has been melted, and soon all of Whoville — excluding Mayor Augustus May Who, who has just recently had his engagement to Martha May Whovier broken, because she had feelings for the Grinch — begin to join in. The Grinch (played by Jim Carrey) adds his own personal "twist" to the nonsense words by singing at first, "Fah Who Ray Moo, Yah Who Yee Haw".

Since the 1990s up until present-day, the song has been included in Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular, before the show culminates and concludes with the story of the "One Solitary Life".
