I love this movie!!! But, I never discovered it until a couple of years ago, hard to believe because it was first shown in 1983 - my children missed the experience of this great movie! But, now they know about it!!!!
I found a little Hallmark tree ornament in the shape of the "leg lamp" from the movie, I was content with that until I was away this past weekend and saw a 20 inch lamp, I loved it but I thought it was too expensive, that was on Friday night, I thought about it all weekend, I went back on Sunday afternoon, gone - every one!! I was so disappointed - really disappointed!!!
I started searching the internet and found where I could order here in Canada, I ordered Sunday night, I had my leg lamp yesterday. Lesson learned there though, I ended up paying more but it's worth it, it's everything I had hoped for!!
If you've watched the movie, you know all about the leg lamp - how Ralphie's father won the full size lamp - "It's a Major Award", Fra-gee-lay - It must be Italian, Isn't it Glorious - and, my lamp if glorious!
When we were in Cleveland last year visiting the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame, we stopped at The Christmas Story House but it was too late in the day, it was closed. But, I did see the lamp in the window - the film was shot in Cleveland and Toronto - here's an article about the Toronto locations that were used in the film. I want to go back to Cleveland again so I can tour the house and visit the gift shop across the street!!
This is my very favourite Christmas movie!! Do you like it?
