Halloween is Passed. Thanksgiving is close, I’m Ready for “A Christmas Story.” — 7 Comments

  1. I love “A Christmas Story” too. I know just what you mean about the serendipity of coming across it rather than having the DVD (although we do have the DVD and will probably watch it at some point). It’s the same as hearing one of your favorite songs on the radio – sure, you could dig out the CD and play it, but it isn’t the same, there’s no delighted surprise!

  2. Wow, I had no idea about any of that about the television rights. My family has a trio movie tradition come Christmas. In no particular order: A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, A Midnight Clear. The latter is not your typical Christmas flick, a little morbid for the holidays but really good. I have to watch them on DVD though. I can’t stand commercials. I was told television at first had no advertising b/c people paid for it, but now we pay for it AND get advertising, a LOT of advertising.

    Oh well, Merry Happy HalloweengivingMas everyone. Don’t lick any frozen poles, say fudge to your father, or shoot your eye out!

  3. The “A Christmas Story” Marathon on TBS begins on Christmas Eve (not sure of the time, but in past years it began at 8:00 p.m. ET) and runs through Christmas Day until evening.

    Last year, TNT also ran the movie over Thanksgiving weekend, but this year will run it back-to-back on Wednesday, Dec. 3 beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET.

    NBC will air “It’s A Wonderful Life” on Saturday, December 13 at 8:00 p.m. ET and again on Christmas Eve at 8:00 p.m.
