a christmas story.

My favorite Christmas movie was on the other night, and I had an epiphany.

It’s the department store window. That’s it. It marks the beginning of the materialistic Christmas. Evidenced first by all the little faces pressed “before a golden, tinkling display of mechanized, electronic . . . joy” and then in little Ralphie’s face at four and a half minutes into this clip.

Here’s the original trailer:

And I know, it’s mean to like this part, but . . . but . . . they didn’t really stick that kid’s tongue to the pole . . . it was done with suction . . . so it’s not really mean . . .

  1. I remember the day when I asked my husband if he’d ever seen “A Christmas Story” and he laughed and said no and went on and on about the christmas movies that I watch and how most of them are soooo sappy. Then I remember bringing home the movie. He watched it twice. back to back.

    Sappy! ha!

    I love this movie.
