A Christmas Story never gets old

A-Christmas-Story

I cannot remember if I saw this Christmas classic in a theater back in 1983, or (like most people today) watched the film on cable television during a twenty-four hour movie marathon. There are very few movies that could be played over and over again without people getting sick of it. A Christmas Story is one of those films that has become apart of America’s contemporary holiday condition. It is a funny story about a young boy (Ralphie) that only wants one gift under the tree, a Red Ryder BB gun, but every adult he comes in contact with tells him, “You’ll shoot your eye out.” The film is a heartfelt, but hilarious journey to a special Christmas morning. This mid-western family captures the highs and lows of the holiday season in a way that resonates with people on many different levels because we are all of these characters in some form and fashion. A Christmas Story never gets old.
