A Little Christmas (Story)






In recent days, it's been hard to find something to smile about. Yet despite wars, tragic domestic events, famine, and plague, it's still Christmas. It's still a time for us to have joy in our hearts.

It may be silly and trite, but few holiday movies bring a smile to my face like "A Christmas Story". I've even read the book in which the story first appeared as part of a collection of short stories by Jean Shepherd. It's as funny in print as on film.

When I searched this morning for a way to bring back my Christmas smile, I found "A Christmas Story" website, complete with games, trivia, movie clips, and more. It brightened my day and I hope it will yours, too.

We really do need a little Christmas (Story). Enjoy it and smile!

My family love this movie and watch it over and over again at Christmas and it never fails to make us laugh. I didn't know it was from a book. I'll look out for it.

My favorite part of that movie was when the nice family shared their turkey with those hungry dogs. Yummy!

The Christmas Story is a classic and does bring a smile to your face.

Nice to meet you Pat. I'm glad Ann sent you my way. Critter Alley is so inviting, it will be a place I visit often now that I've found it.
