A Christmas Story is at the top of my list of favourite Christmas movies. Yes, it beats out It's a Wonderful Life, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Miracle on 34th St. If you haven't watched it, you don't know what you're missing!
The film is set in the 1940's and it focuses on Ralphie and his dealings with his odd family, the friends he hangs out with and his fervent desire for an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle.
A terrific film minus the swearing, sex and over-the-top violence. A movie you can enjoy with the grandparents and parents.
