I don't care for 'The Christmas Story' but maybe if I'd even been a 10 year old boy who wanted a Red Ryder gun I might like it. My husband likes it so we watch it over and over but he can relate. I also never took to 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I do like silly movies, 'Elf', 'Christmas Vacation', etc.. and period Christmas movies 'Happy Christmas Miss King', 'The Waltons Christmas' and 'Wind At My Back Christmas'.
