A Christmas Story House Lights Up For Christmas

Everybody loves the movie “A Christmas Story” about Ralphie’s Christmas wish for a Red Ryder BB Gun (“You’ll shoot your eye out!), triple dog dares, “meatloaf, smeatloaf, double-beatloaf,” a tongue stuck to a metal pole, and of course a "major award" leg lamp. This film had many scenes filmed in the city of Cleveland, and the house used for the exterior shots was in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. This house was restored and the interior transformed to match the interior sets used in the movie, and opened in November 2006 as The Christmas Story House & Museum, located at 3159 W. 11th Street.

This year, the owners of the house and museum decided to take a cue from the fictional character of Clark Griswold in the film “Christmas Vacation” by lighting the Christmas Story House in the same manner. Here’s a new video from Insider Perks which chronicles the lighting. I’ve also included a video that they produced when the house and museum opened so you can get a quick tour.
