Whether you prefer Christmas classics like “It’s A Wonderful Life,” cult favorites such as “A Christmas Story” or newer hits like “Elf” or “The Santa Clause,” we bet you didn’t know some of the behind-the-scenes secrets of these holiday films.
“A Christmas Story”
There’s no other holiday movie that receives the amount of airplay that “A Christmas Story” does. TNT plays a 24-hour marathon that starts on Christmas Eve and if you’re a super fan what better way to spend that special time of year than in the same house that Ralphie, Randy and their parents lived? The house is real and has been preserved as a museum that is open year round. Over the holiday season, the museum holds an auction where anyone can bid on the experience to spend two days and two nights living in the house from Christmas Eve to Christmas. As an added bonus on Christmas morning, traditional “A Christmas Story” gifts are opened in the living room including two BB guns.
