A CHRISTMAS STORY
This wonderful movie was made in 1983, but is a child's eye view of Christmas in the 1940s -- told with a child's blunt honesty. A Christmas Story was written by humorist Jean Sheperd, and he even narrates the story, as an adult looking back fondly, but clearly, at cherished events that every one can relate to. Your dad may never have won a "special prize," but I'll bet you've heard something like, "you'll shoot your eye out, kid."
And remember, you can find all your favorite Christmas movies at the library. Check back here every day for staff recommendations of their favorite Christmas movies.
