You're A Snowman, Mr. Grinch

The Grinch is always greener on the other side of the fence if you live next door to Dale Day of Willoughby, Ohio.

Day has made snow sculptures in the front yard of his northeast Ohio home before, including the Titanic and Abraham. But this year's creation, the lead character of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, is attracting more attention than ever, reports CBS affiliate WOIO-TV in Cleveland, Ohio.

Day's work is not all for fun. He's also trying to get a business off the ground, selling an instructional video and the coloring he uses to paint the snow.

The 48-year-old, a maintenance worker at a local church, fell into his hobby almost by accident. One winter day in 1976, Day and a brother "for some weird reason," built a big abominable snowman. Just for laughs.
