I’ve watched the movie, The Christmas Story, on Christmas day for several years now. You know, the hilarious story of the boy who”s afraid of getting his eye shot out with a bee-bee gun. It is a good “Christmas story” but it’s more than that. Much like To Kill A Mocking Bird and other movies about family life and child development, it has an authentic feel to it and gives us a grounding in the past. Even though it’s a comedy and Mocking Bird is not, I’m adding The Christmas Story to my list of favorite movies.
