And they will once again this year starting Christmas Eve for 24 hours. The movie was made in 1983 and has become a classic that families this time of the year sit around and enjoy together. When you sit and watch the movie this year you may ask yourself "I wonder what that Ralphie kid is up to these days"? In case you forgot Ralphie is the kid in the movie that stuck his tounge to the frozen pole and he also wanted a Red Ryder BB Gun, and how could you forget the red Coke Bottle glasses!
