Gearing Up for the Holidays

Even though I have never seen A Christmas Story in its entirety, the film’s pervasiveness in American culture cannot be denied.  lampleg

Imagine my confusion when I was invited to an A Christmas Story-themed holiday party last weekend, only to arrive to find an upside-down Christmas tree, Nerf guns lying around, and ladies dressed up in black fishnet tights with lamps as skirts.  What have I been missing?

Tscutoday, Betty Jo Tucker of Movie Addict Headquarters prepares us all for the holiday season with a special tribute to this 1983 flick.  Special guests include Zack Ward and Julie Matthews from the film’s original cast who weigh in on their experiences during filming, plus their reactions to its long-lived popularity. Both have gone on to successful careers in the entertainment industry.  Mad Movie Man A.J. Hakari joins in to analyze the film’s role in Christmas movie history.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I have a rental to pick up from the video store.
