Christmas Countdown: A Christmas Story (1983)

December 9, 2011

Every day from December 1st to 24th, we will be counting down to Christmas by profiling holiday classics both old and new.  Arranged in chronological order, these are some of our favourites to watch every year.  Enjoy!

Cue the chorus of “you’ll shoot your eye out,” because today’s countdown pick is A Christmas Story.  The 1983 classic about little Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) who wants a Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas, is filled with memorable characters and is as heartwaming and hilarious as it is quotable.  The wonderful screenplay by Jean Shepherd is funny, sweet and suitably nostalgic – sometimes all at the same time, making this a classic that continues to entertain with every repeat viewing.
