    A Christmas Story (traditions?)

    Who makes watching "A Christmas Story" one of their holiday traditions?

    They usually start showing it on TV around Thanksgiving. And they always show it for 24 hours straight starting Christmas Eve Lasting until Christmas Day. So who makes this film a part of their Holidays? My family sure does, I've seen it every year since I was a little kid.

    Re: A Christmas Story (traditions?)

    Ever since it came out I have not missed it. Even though I have it on DVD, we still watch it while we have family over. This movie has become such a tradition. Funny thing is my friends work sell Red Ryder BB guns.
    My favorite scene is the Chinese restaurant where they have there Christmas Dinner. Also when the Ralphie's mom & dad are sitting in front of the window watching the snow fall in the dark, this moment is so beautiful with the Xmas lights. Great American Christmas movie.

    Re: A Christmas Story (traditions?)

    We watch this movie every single Christmas morning. The girls get up, they go through their stockings while we make monkey bread and put it in to cook and then open presents while it's in the oven. Once that is done, we eat, the girls play with their toys and we put A Christmas Story on and all fall asleep while watching it. Even if we've already watched it 10 times, we still always put it in on Christmas morning.

    well we technically have to watch it given the fact that it is on all the time during the holiday season. But none the less we love it. The old man is pretty funny.

    No matter how much the rest of my family may dislike it, I will still put it on and watch it over and over again. I have the DVD also and will occasional pop it in throughout the year for my wishing it was the holidays fix. It's one of my all time favorite films, not just holiday films, but all films.

    I always watch it! In fact the TV is on most of the day on Christmas Eve and that's what we put on.

    Nice avatar ksejr1. Very nice.
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Wait can the word "dislike" and "A Christmas Story" really go together? Is that even possible?

    Did you know that the guy who played Ralphies younger brother, Randy, quit showbiz and is now a puppeteer?

    Re: A Christmas Story (traditions?)

    We will have to see this along with "Miricle on 34th Street" & the more modern "Scrogged" & "Christmas Vacation" at least once but the 2 movies I will have to see are "It's A Wonderful Life" and "White Christmas".
    I start fussing to see "It's a Wonderful Life" on Thanksgiving Day, it usually works, everyone is too tired from over eating to argue.

    Isn't puppeteering part of showbiz?

    I still have not seen the movie all the way through....

    Ralphie himself is actually in the movie Elf. He's still in the business but mostly working behind the scenes as a producer. He's friends with Jon Favreau who directed Elf and did the movie as a favor to him. He's the elf checking on Buddy's work in the toyshop.
