Thirteen Reasons Why A Christmas Story Is MUCH Better Than Its A Wonderful Life

1. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The Pink Bunny Costume.

2. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The Leg Lamp

3. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Oh FUDGE!!!!!!!

4. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

It's Stuck!

You'll shoot your eye out, kid. Ho. Ho. HO.

6. Now you can take a vacation to the house. It's like a pilgrimage.

7. Randy eats like my kids.

8. We would all like to beat the sh** out of the local bully, and you don't get to see anything like that in It's A Wonderful Life (all right ... Ace just told me that George Bailey does get punched out in a bar ... not the same thing, though.)

9. 24 hour marathon on TBS keeps us company while we wrap presents. It really has become a Christmas tradition for us.

10. Jingle Berls on a one horsey open sleigh.

11. Randy in his snow suit. "Come on, guys... wait up." A popped tick. Priceless.

12. Sums abitches. Bumpises. Our favorite phrase around here. But not around the kids, of course.

13. Deck the Harls with boughs of Horr-ee .. Fa ra ra ra ra...ra ra ra ra.

A Christmas Story rocks! I also liked the way the dad pronounced fragile that was stamped on the box when the leg lamp arrived. FRA-GEE-LEY.

Sadly to say, I, too, put my tongue on the monkey bars in the first grade. I was brought to the front of the class to teach the other kids a "lesson" about listening to your friends. It was a very demeaning day, to say the least.

And Chickadee.... i TOTALLY woke up think about that SAME line, wishing I had included it! LOL!

Love it, love it, love it! Laughing hysterically. Can't wait to watch that movie again! (Still love the other one too, sorry.)

*high five* I seriously love this movie and could watch it over and over again. I never do, Pman can't handle that, but I could.

This is a total kick butt TT! I sent my mom the link for the house museum, you know, just in case she wanted to go and take pictures for me. LOL!

Oh, and I bought her leg lamp mini lights a couple years back for Christmas. She's going to hang them on the awning of their RV.

DUDE! I didn't know they have leg lamp LIGHTS!!! I SOOO need to get a mini tree and decorate it in Christmas Story stuff.... a red ryder bb gun, the lights, and other things I can't think of. Oh ... a bar of Lifebuoy. Isn't that the one his mother put in his mouth?

Love your list!!! I totally agree much better than It's a Wonderful Life. I love every part of it. I love that they eat meatloaf everynight,the turkey "You'll get's not done cooking!"....FRA-GEE-LAY!!! The 7 yr old son LOVES it as well. I told him he can't sing, "Deck the halls with bows of hor-ee." in public and remind him that "smart ass" is not something we say. A Christmas Story theme tree would be awesome!!!

I never seen It's a Wonderful Life. Am I like the only one in the world who hasn't? *looks around*

This is one of our family's favorite holiday movies. It will be running all day Christmas and we will probably watch it at least four times.

Blogger The Shrone said...

Both movies have their merits, but I'd have to agree that A Christmas Story is better.

I'm already laughing. I love watching it while wrapping presents too, makes wrapping faster and funner!!

Blogger Zeus said...

We always watch A Christmas Story during the holidays! I also enjoy the "triple dog dare" scene. Every time I see it, I always think privately that I have to try that. In the end, I think I'm too chicken!

Happy Thursday to you!

I (very quietly) sang "Fa ra ra ra ra" when we were eating at the local Chinese restaurant the other night. I'm bad, I know it.
