be sure to drink your ovaltine

I had never seen A Christmas Story until sometime around 1993 when my new husband, appalled at what amounted to my wasted childhood, insisted we watch it. I have loved it since, every nostalgic moment from the period sets & costumes to the innocent dreams of pre-WWII kids.

Almost as much fun as rewatching it every year is looking up all of the actors to see what they're doing now. Peter Billingsley is refreshingly normal & successful; Scott Schwartz a tad less so...

Ho Ho Ho
