One of my all time favorite movies is A Christmas Story. It’s the story of a young boy that just wants a BB gun for Christmas. All he does is think about the gun and how to convince his parents on letting him have a BB gun. The movie reminds me of my childhood and those days leading up to Christmas. We are right now in the middle of those days and there are so many kids that can’t wait until Santa Clause comes.
Ralphie did everything in his powers to get that Red Rider BB Gun and it’s great how the movie solves the problem at the end. This movie is usually shown on TNT for 24 hours during Christmas Day. I haven’t seen the advertisements for it this year yet, but I’m sure a lot of networks will make sure that everyone has a chance to see A Christmas Story. It’s one of the best Christmas movies ever and I can’t think of one that is better. Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman was two movies I love to watch as a kid, but now I think A Christmas Story is my favorite holiday treat.
I really like the scenes that take place in school and the little boy that touches his tongue to the metal pole. That was were really funny and should be a lesson to all kids to watch what they put their tongues to, when the weather outside is below freezing. It must be nice to have snow like that during the Christmas holidays. I live in Georgia and if we get a few flurries here at anytime, it’s like Christmas Day for us. I’m hoping this year we get a big snow storm in the middle of the drought most of Georgia and the Southeast is going through right now.
If you have never seen the movie A Christmas Story, then be sure to check it out Christmas Day. I’m sure TNT will once again host their 24 hour marathon on A Christmas Story. I just turn my television to that channel and leave it on all day, so I can watch this movie over and over.
