It’s the holiday season; the time of year where children everywhere wake their parents up even earlier than normal to open their gifts. It’s the time of year for Santa Claus and stockings and gift-giving and joy.
It is also the time of year for one of my favorite movies: A Christmas Story. TBS shows the movie on repeat. Most of us have seen it: a young, precocious boy named Ralphie growing up in the Midwest in the 40’s wants a Red Rider BB gun for Christmas. Everyone tells him he’ll shoot his eye out, but eventually, he gets his wish.
