One of my traditions from my single days (which I still follow)was to watch as much of a Christmas Story as possible... (my record was 20 hours - gets a bit repetitive after the 9th viewing). Currently watching it, and have always been a big fan of it, to the charign of the others in my family. A US cultural icon, it does give two frequently quoted lines, which almost every fellow knows...

1) "You'll shoot your eye out"!
2) "I triple-dog dare you!"

(Oh, and I believe his younger brother gets Zeppelin gift as a present - the *extremely* weak steampunk connnection - lol).

Again- Merry Christmas!

The "famous" tongue stuck to the pole scene and all the school scenes where filmed in my home town :) The School still stands, but it has been transformed into a women's shelter now.
