Peace. Harmony. Comfort and Joy… Maybe Next Year.

The funniest thing about Christmas, according to Jean Shepherd’s over-the-top holiday comedy, is spending it with your own family. In 1940s Indiana, nine-year-old Ralphie dreams of his ideal Christmas gift: a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. But when his gruff dad and doting mom regularly respond with “You’ll shoot your eye out!” Ralphie mounts a full-scale, hint-dropping, Santa-begging campaign. In this tale you’ll be caught up in all kinds of childhood calamities from snowsuit paralysis to the yellow-eyed Scotty Farkus affair to the dreaded tongue-on-a-frozen-flagpole gambit.

We triple-dog-dare you to unwrap a more comical Yuletide classic!
