A Christmas Story House and Lady Leg Shrine

Visited both attractions. The original house is great, the tour and shop across the street are excellent. As an avid fan and watcher of the movie every Christmas since it was released, I loved it. A very special thank you to Jim Moralevitz for his Leg Lady Shrine -- it was the perfect tribute and I was glad to see it. Worth it, worth it, worth it!

The Lady Leg Shrine is only a couple of houses away from the A Christmas Story house, so it's easy to visit both in one stop.

"A Christmas Story" House

The 1983 movie "A Christmas Story" was filmed in this neighborhood. This house was the home of the main character, Ralphie, who wanted a BB gun for Christmas. More importantly, it served as the window setting for the famous "Leg Lamp," a shapely leg in fishnet stockings and a high heel topped off with a fringed lampshade. The house has been restored and is open for tours; a museum is located across the street.

"A Christmas Story" House

What an awesome time. It is an exciting story, and the people who work there know it very well. If it were not for RA, we would not have found it, seeing as it is not otherwise advertised.
