A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story
by Philip Grecian

Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story ©1983 Turner Entertainment Co., distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and on the book In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd

This year, there’s a gift that Ralphie wants more than anything in the world – a Red Ryder 200-Shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle – but his parents don’t seem to think it’s such a good idea. His mother warns him, “You’ll shoot your eye out,” and his father is too busy tinkering with the family’s furnace and evading the dogs from next door to pay much attention. Ralphie decides to wage a three-pronged campaign for the Christmas gift of his dreams. On the home front, he bombards his parents’ mail and magazines with Red Ryder advertisements. On the school front, he toils over a particular assignment that he’s sure will convince his teacher, Miss Shields, to take up his cause. Finally, he visits the local department store, nervously hoping that Santa will endorse his wish. Ralphie and his friends make every effort to be on their very best behavior in order to impress the adults who wield power over their Christmas destinies, but staying out of trouble isn’t always as easy as it should be; sometimes it’s hard to avoid giving into a dare or uttering a curse word. As Christmas draws closer, Ralphie gets increasingly anxious about what surprises (either good or bad) the holiday season will bring.
