How cool is this?

Somebody has bought the house used in A Christmas Story, restored it and has opened it to the public. It opened yesterday. How fun a blogger road trip would that be?  Too bad it’s a pretty fur piece away.

And in other Christmas Story trivia…I learned this last year.  The guy who plays Ralphie…Peter Billingsley…is one of the elves in the workshop in one of my other favorite Christmas movies, Elf.  I can’t believe I never picked up on that before.  It’s an uncredited role, but, now that I know it, you can see it IS him.  Look here.
