Things I Love Thursday

What I love this Thursday--The Christmas Story, my all-time favorite Christmas movie! Who can resist Ralphie and his impassioned quest for a Red Ryder BB gun, despite all obstacles (bullies, leg lamps, frozen lamp posts, bogus decoder pins, etc). My whole family loves this movie, and every year around this time my dad cooks meatloaf and red cabbage and we have a viewing party. I look forward to this all year!

It really is a classic. It is funny and oh so true. I think we can all see our past Christmases in it. One of the things I like about it is its lack of mean spiritedness. There is no sarcasm, snide remarks, or nastiness. It shows an innocence we have lost.
