What can I say – “A Christmas Story” brings back awesome memories and bad ones too. I was a youngling when the movie was first released in 1983. I didn’t become aware of the Christmassy goodness this movie offered until a couple of years later when my parents put it on the T.V. really loud to drown out the fighting between them. I concentrated on the movie so hard so that I didn’t have to hear them and I became enthralled in the story of Ralphie.
