For some, an annual viewing (or 12) of a Christmas story is a holiday tradition.The classic movie gives viewers a glimpse into the holidays in the good old days when people understood the real meaning of Christmas: that Children deserve to get the guns they want. Just kidding – it’s satire! At least that was part of Sam Kashner’s attitude in a 2016 Vanity Fair article:

When A Christmas Story premiered in 1983, we suddenly had a new type of vacation movie that recognized the “unbridled stinginess,” the commerce, the disappointments, the hurt feelings and all in all – even enjoyed bad luck, which in reality often did In other words, how real Christmas was in real families, it brought about an exciting explosion of satire and realism wrapped in a funny, pitched story of a middle-class family negotiating the dangers of Christmas and through the eyes of a nine-year-old boy was remembered

And thanks to the soft focus, warm colors, and vintage set design, A Christmas Story makes a decent ambient movie to watch in the background while you’re cooking, opening gifts, or doing other things around the house during the holidays / p>
