Santa Claus: You'll shoot your eye out, kid.
One of my all-time favourite christmas movies has got to be A Christmas Story, one of the funniest movies from any time of the year. The film, celebrating it's 25th anniversary , tugs our memories back to when we were kids at christmas, hoping and praying for that special gift.
The dialogue from the movie is exquisite, and the situations Ralphie, his father (Darren McGavin) and his brother get into are priceless.
Mental Floss has a page of Trivia about the movie and did you know you could buy the leg lamp? In fact there are 13 different leg lamp items for sale at the A Christmas Story House Gift Shop
Here's the movie boiled down to 2:09:
