Celebrating Christmas Year Round

It really is tragic that people only feel the Christmas spirit one month a year. In our house we try to be better than that, and invite the spirit of Christmas every day into our home. Which is why this-





has a permanent spot in our living room. Nothing says Christmas like a leg lamp, and who are we to hide the leg lamp under bushel? We let that light shine 12 months a year.

What a great idea! I need to get me a leg lamp. I want to have Christmas spirit all year long too.

"'Oh, fudge!' Only it didn't come out 'fudge'. You know the one I'm talking about. It came out the big one. The mother of all dirty words. The F dash dash dash word!" I love that movie!

"Frah-gee-lay!!!! Must be Italian!" Christmas Story is so good because of all the one-liners and classic scenes such as sticking the tongue to the flag pole and the "fuuuuuuuuuuuuudge" incident. Every once in a while when one of our kids shows poor manners at the dinner table we admonish them with "Be my little piggy!!! Eat your food!!! Oink oink!!"

It was a blast to watch the Christmas Story dvd with the director's comment track enabled. We learned how and where they filmed particular scenes, how they were glad they got the actors they did, and how they actually did the "tongue on the flagpole scene".
