Kick off your holiday season with the adaptation of the classic Christmas movie we all know and love! A Christmas Story follows nine-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself at Higbee’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out!” All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; clashing with the town bully Scut Farkas; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; the old man winning a “fragile” leg lamp in a net stocking; the pink bunny pajamas from Aunt Clara; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more. Retold with a touch of childhood fantasy, these Christmas stories remind us all why we love the holidays. Perfect for the whole family!
