24 hours of a christmas story

It has begun. And yes, our family keeps it on for the full 24 hours. Although we may not watch the movie one full time in its entirety, we do manage to piece it together over the course of the day. This movie classic couldn't capture the magic of Christmas more - the friendships, family dynamics, lights, traditions, Bumpuses (we currently have five dogs in our house…). We look forward to 7:00 every Christmas Eve so we can quote things like, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid”, “I can't put my arms down!” and “They looked at me as if I had lobsters crawling out of my ears.” It really does bring you back to that magical time when you were a kid at Christmas. True story: I stuck my tongue to a telephone pole when I was about 8 years old. It sticks. Trust me.

May you have a wonderful Christmas, and I hope you get the Red Ryder of your dreams – whatever that may be.

  1. Oh, this movie....I dread this movie but for some reason it just doesn't feel right if it's not on our TV at some point Christmas day.
