The holidays are here, and that means we got to watch the great holiday movie, “A Christmas Story.” Then we got to watch it again. And again.
We’re fine with that, especially here in Indiana. The movie is set in the Hoosier state, and it is based on stories by Indiana’s own Jean Shepherd. He narrates the movie, too.
Some of the scenes in “A Christmas Story” come from Shepherd’s collection, “In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash.” In the book you’ll find stories about Flick, the Red Rider pellet gun and the old man’s special award.
