Christmas movies: they just don’t make ‘em like they used to. (Or my taste was worse back then. Or I’m a sucker for 80′s nostalgia. Could be that).
My family looooved Christmas movies, and these were some of the movies on heavy rotation in my house during the holiday season.
A Christmas Story
This is the classic childhood Christmas movie, right? Poor Ralphie just wanted a BB gun, but the adults in his life were convinced he would shoot his eye out. This movie was such an accurate portrayal of childhood angst and family drama that it just got funnier the older I got. And who could forget the TRIPLE DOG DARE tongue on the flagpole, and the sexy leg lamp?
