Christmas is but days away. With it comes an annual event that my own television will not participate in, so I implore all of you out there with cable to take advantage of the opportunity that TBS is affording you. Of course I am talking about 24 hours of A Christmas Story. I don't have cable, so I won't be watching it all night on Christmas Eve like I have during the past few years. I do, however, have it on DVD. So I'll be watching it at some point. And I'm pretty sure the Greenes will have it on for awhile too, so I'll get to see it there. In the meantime, to tie you all over, here are two pivotal scenes from that holiday classic. Remember, this film is rated PG. Blog-reader discretion is advised.
