A couple of lawmakers from Ohio want to create a special day to celebrate what is arguably the best Christmas movie ever made. Representatives Terrance Upchurch and Tom Patton have introduced a bill that would create a day honoring the classic holiday movie about Ralphie Parker and his Red Rider BB Gun.
Although the movie was set in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, it was filmed in Cleveland, which is why Ralphie’s house is on Cleveland Street. Their hope is to designate November 18th (the date the film was released in theaters back in 1983) as "A Christmas Story Family Day" in Ohio.
The house in Cleveland, Ohio where they filmed the movie is open for tours and overnight stays. Right across the street is the A Christmas Story Museum, which has original props, photos, costumes and memorabilia from the movie on display. CLICK HERE to find out more about The Christmas Story house!
