*Warning: Major spoilers ahead*
A Christmas Story has become such a cult classic among holiday movie aficionados that they would probably triple dog dare you to watch it if you had never seen it. The wintertime staple is so beloved that every year since 2004, TBS has aired it for 24 hours straight on Christmas Eve (yes, 24 hours straight), and if you're anything like my family, then there's always at least three viewings each year (and the jokes somehow never get old).
In 2022, the movie got the sequel treatment with A Christmas Story Christmas, which is available to stream on Max. In this follow-up, we once again follow Ralphie (played by the original actor, Peter Billingsley) 33 years after the events of the ’83 film, as he tries to make the perfect Christmas for his own family.
