A Christmas Story Was Made For The Kids And Everyone Else

It is that time of year. As the Holiday season creeps up on to us, the greatest holiday season movie of all time prepares to be shown again and again. A Christmas Story may very well be the best holiday film ever made. Released in 1983, A Christmas Story reveals everything it is to be a kid or a family during the festive season and makes it hilarious all at the same time.

If you've seen this movie before you know exactly what I am talking about. If you haven't seen it yet, by Joseph, make time for you and your kids or even somebody else's kids who you have permission to be with, to go and see it. In fact, you probably won't have to go far to catch it. If you have access to television, and I understand if you are in prison that could be tricky, but if you are free and have access to a television, I can assure you the wait will not be long. Anytime now A Christmas Story will begin to be shown on countless channels at every hour of the day and night.

In a lot of ways this movie is like your favorite dessert. You can't wait to get some of it. It is hilarious. It is fun. Most importantly, it is great for the whole family. Sure, I know a few of you are saying what about It's A Beautiful Life. Sure, that film is classic too. Jimmy Stewart is a legend. The film is both touching and heart warming and you must be some kind of ogre not to like it. Fine, I will give you all that. However, it isn't like A Christmas Story for so many reasons that I just don't have the time to go through them all.

Let's face it, if you watch A Christmas Story for the first time and don't like it, just walk straight out of your home and check yourself into an insane asylum. Trust me, you got problems. Something has to be seriously broken for you not to love this flick.

I guarantee you if you grab your friends and the kids and huddle around to enjoy this film, A Christmas Story will change the way you look at desk lamps. It will make you want to wash the kids mouths out with soap regardless of what they say. And you know how badly you want to stick your tongue on that freezing metal pole during the winter. I say go for it!

If you haven't seen A Christmas Story yet, you'll love it. If you have, I'll see you guys at the mall. Don't get too close though kids, you'll poke your eyes out!!
