Fans celebrate the 25th anniversary of the holiday classic "A Christmas Story". More than 4,000 gather at an annual convention dedicated to the movie. A house featured in the film has become a tourist attraction in Cleveland, Ohio."It's a phenomenon to some degree and part of Americana," actor says. A Christmas Story," released in 1983, starred Peter Billingsley as a boy on a quest for his dream present. Who watches this movie every year? I admit I do. http://www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/Movies/12/08/christmas.story.turns.25/index.html#cnnSTCOther1

I love this movie! We make a point to watch this movie and a few other Christmas movies every year. I guess you can say that it is one of our family traditions!

Well, it certainly seems to be on the TV every year. I've watched it myself, too, but I don't intentionally sit down with the purpose of watching the show. It is either on the TV or not as I'm surfing.

I always watch it at least once a year. I have not seen it yet this year though. I will have to keep an eye out for when it comes on television. I always get a kick out of that movie.
