Ralphie, a young boy growing up, dreams of owning a Red Rider BB gun. He sets out to convince the world this is the perfect gift. But along the way, he runs into opposition from his parents, his teacher, and even good ol’ Santa Claus himself.
Both warmly nostalgic and darkly humorous, A Christmas Story deserves its status as a holiday perennial.
