The holidays have once again come full circle, with the Christmas Story showing in an endless loop of funny scenes that most of us have seen many times over.
It is still funny because it reminds us of simpler times.
These days much of the simplicity of what we see in this Christmas reminder is a testament to what once way but will never be again.
For the most part it is a silly movie and it is likely that those that made the movie never envisioned the success and (royalties) that would come so many years after the original project was finished.
By the way this does not just happen in the movies, a reporter emailed us stating that he had actually seen this happen at the former Pease Air Force Base.
They secured the unlucky persons (name with held) by soaking them down with water, it was at the time half funny and half scary.
Who knew that years later it would become a part of one of the biggest Christmas movies (by volume) in history, at least in some places.
Over all yet another year has passed and as we look to a new year we anticipate many great things.
Merry Christmas and Happy New year.
