The 12 Days Of Christmas Movies: A Christmas Story

Okay, it's time for a good laugh! And the funniest Christmas Movie around is A Christmas Story! If you've never seen it, just turn on TNT on Christmas day, they play it repeatedly for 24 hours straight! It must be Ted Turners favorite Christmas Movie ever! :)

My boys especially love this type of humor. We all quote lines from this movie all year long! Get ready to lol! And please, feel free to share your favorite parts with us too!

"Some men are Baptists, others Catholics;
My Father was an Oldsmobile Man."

"First nighters packed ear muff-to-earmuff, jostled in wonderment before a golden,
tinkling display of merchandised, electronic joy!"

"It's a major award!"
"Fra-gee-lay, that must be Italian.
Uh, I think that says Fragile, dear."

This is also a very educational film. In it we learn how to stand up to bullies! How to dress to play in the snow. How to get what you want for Christmas. And what happens to you if you use swear words! (see photo above) :) Oh yeah, and what happens if you lick a pole in the winter . . .

"I Triple-dog-dare ya!"

"You'll shoot your eye out!"

"Deck the harrs with boughs of horry, fa ra ra ra ra, ra ra ra ra."

This is our family's absolute favorite Christmas movie. We watch it together every single year and like you we quote lines from the movie all year round.
