“You’ll shoot your eye out.”

If you immediately recognize this line, you might be one of the 40 million Americans who tune in every year for at least part of the 24-hour marathon of “A Christmas Story.” The 1983 film had a modest start, but over the decades has grown into one of the most popular Christmas movies of all time.

And now, nearly 40 years later, for the first time ever Peter Billingsley reprises his role of Ralphie in a sequel called “A Christmas Story Christmas.”

Join the fun as Ashley and Candy first revisit the original movie, sharing little-known facts about the beloved holiday classic, then their reactions after watching the sequel. We triple dog dare ya!
