'A Christmas Story': 15 Holly Jolly Facts About The Beloved Holiday Classic
How many times have you seen A Christmas Story? It’s such an ingrained holiday tradition, you’d think the Magi brought a VHS copy to Jesus in the manger, along with a reel of It’s a Wonderful Life and a bunch of caroling children. Not so -- A Christmas Story doesn’t just go completely unmentioned in the Bible, but no one even paid a lot of attention to it for years after its release (just like Jesus). And yet, it eventually came to be the definitive Christmas movie -- the work of wisdom that taught us that dangerous toys and dysfunctional families are the true reason for the season.
