Primary Blog/ISSUE #42: Exciting New Episode Tonight & A Major Announcement! 🎄✨

Hello A Christmas Story Family,

The Magic of Family Traditions

In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to overlook what truly matters—family. Traditions play a crucial role in keeping us connected, providing a sense of belonging, and creating memories that last a lifetime. They offer us a way to slow down, appreciate each other, and build a legacy that future generations can cherish.

That’s why the united cast of A Christmas Story has embarked on a mission to help you create and strengthen your family traditions. We believe that the warmth and humor of A Christmas Story can bring families closer together, not just during the holiday season but throughout the entire year.

We're excited to share a truly special episode of Talking A Christmas Story with the Cast, airing tonight at 7:30 PM. Join me, Yano Anaya, as we dive into the journey of a fan whose passion for A Christmas Story transcended mere admiration, evolving into an integral part of our beloved family.

The night before the grand celebration, we hosted a special dinner with the cast, including Peter Billingsley (Ralphie), the mayor of Hammond, Irwin Zwilling (Jean Shepherd’s accountant and close friend), board members from the Indiana Welcome Center, and many other distinguished guests.

At this exclusive dinner, we unveiled our specially crafted gift boxes. Designed to look like the iconic leg lamp crate and filled with Major Awards only the Old Man could dream of, each box is a tribute to the film’s legacy. Now, for the first time ever, we are giving you the chance to receive one of these exclusive boxes for FREE as part of our new magical experience.
