Weekend Wonders: "A Christmas Story" Home for the Holidays!

From read-a-holicz

Is your favorite Yuletide movie "A Christmas Story" (1983)?  Did you ever wonder what a day in the life of Ralphie Parker and his family would be like?  Well, one lucky winner and three guests will get to find out!  Brian Jones, the owner of the Cleveland, Ohio, house which was used in the movie as the Parker family home, is auctioning off a two-night stay for four on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day on eBay.

The winner will also receive $800 worth of movie gifts, including the iconic Red Ryder BB Gun!  The bidding currently stands at $8,700, but closes on Tuesday, December 8th at 5:48 PM (how did I not hear of this sooner?), so if this is your idea of the perfect Christmas gift, get your bid in soon!  Apparently this charity fundraiser is an annual event, so more auctions will be held for Christmas 2016 and beyond.  I might be giving this travel adventure some serious thought -- after all, how many people can say they celebrated Christmas just like Ralphie?
