You're Gonna Shoot Your Eye Out!

You're Gonna Shoot Your Eye Out!

Thanks for the guest post by Kristofer Bartlett

Christmas is a wonderful time of year! My dad, my sister and myself enjoy one certain Christmas movie every year, and we watch it repeatedly when the marathon comes on. The marathon usually airs the entire week of Christmas...lucky for us! The movie was released the year I was born, in 1983.

"A Christmas Story" is one of the greatest Christmas movies of all time. We enjoy watching Ralphie and his dysfunctional family on satellite television. With the famous words of, "You're gonna shoot your eye out" and all the fuss about a Red Ryder BB gun, what is there to not love about this movie?

All three of us will sit around the Direct Star TV laughing until our stomachs hurt. My dad loves the part when Ralphie's parents receive the woman's leg lamp. His father sets it up on the table like it's the most beautiful thing he's ever seen.

If you haven't seen "A Christmas Story", I highly suggest it! This movie is hysterical from beginning to end. From Ralphie's point of view, him and his little brother endure a really rough life. Bigger kids tease and torture them on their way to school, tongues are getting stuck to flag poles, and grown ups are denying Ralphie his Red Ryder BB gun. Sit back for two hours and enjoy the wonderful goodness of "A Christmas Story."
