While visiting my parents in Henderson, KY over the holidays, we encountered the leg lamp from the movie The Christmas Story. On Christmas Eve we drove around looking at the beautiful Christmas lights on people’s homes. We saw multi-colored lights to a whole house decked out with blue lights. They were all pretty. It’s amazing how Christmas lights get you in the spirit. My dad drove down a street and there it was; the leg lamp shining brightly in a store front window. It looked exactly like the one in the movie. We never laughed so hard in our lives because my parents thought another lamp post down that street was the leg lamp. They hadn’t seen the movie. Once we got home, we turned on the tube. Guess what was on the T.V. when we got home? You guessed it: The Christmas Story! We watched it and laughed again at the part where the dad recieves the leg lamp in a huge pine box.
