The 1983 film “A Christmas Story” has been a family favorite of ours for years. It’s the story of 9 year old Ralphie and his family in the weeks before Christmas. Well, on Christmas day, I was the happy recipient of a genuine replica “leg lamp,” as seen in the film.
If you haven’t seen the movie, I can’t really do it justice here, but suffice to say, just as Ralphie’s Mom was mortified when Dad won his “major award” and promptly placed it in the front picture window of their home, so too did I. You just have to share something this special with everyone, right??
The neighbors are still talking, but Mrs. Ed is not.
At least not to me.
