You know, I wanted to give this its own space because it deserves it. But you know what?
It's a Christmas Story. It turns 30 this month.
We all know it. We've all seen it (if you haven't, what's wrong with you? Either go out and get it or wait until Christmas and turn on TBS where they play it all day). We all love it. Even though it takes place obviously in the late 40s/early 50s, it's pretty much most Americans' childhoods in some form or another.
Honestly, 'nuff said.
