|(A Christmas Story Gift Shop Tee Shirt)|
The year that I first saw the movie 'A Christmas Story' was the year it came out on TV for the first time. I was probaby somewhere around 5th grade. That would make me, what, about 10 or 11-ish, yeah something like that. I remember the gifts all wrapped and sitting ready to open weeks before Christmas. I never was much for trying to figure out which ones were for who, but my sister was, so I always ended up knowing which ones were mine without even a slight peek here and there.
This particular year there was a long slender box for me. I thought long and hard for weeks about what in the world could that possibly be. Most years my dad has never been good at keeping a straight face when you guessed what your gift was. This time though, I never got that face from him. So as Christmas drew closer our plans that year were that we were spending Christmas in Southern Californina with my grandparents, my mom's parents.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope this year has brought you the most memorable of moments with you and your loved ones and that you may never forget the reason for this blessed day. Happy birthday to Jesus Lord and Savior. A King is Born, Praise be to God!
