One year my wife and I went on our usual summer road trip through the States and we were near Cleveland. “Hey, the house from A Christmas Story is in Cleveland, let’s go.” So we did. It was just fantastic. A tour guide took you through theHummingBird Personalized Ornament first telling funny bits of trivia from the movie as we walked around the kitchen, living room, Ralphie’s room, the bathroom where the soap is (plastic), the phone on the wall where Mrs. Schwartz received the call. After the tour you could walk around on your own. Outside was the shed where the bad guys were crawling that Old Blue took care of and The Bumpusses house. I even took a walk down the street a few houses where Randy fell on the snow wearing his big snowsuit. Across the street was the museum where they had actual props from the movie, the clothes worn, photos and even the fathers car and the fire truck. I had a ball seeing the actual things that were in the movie. If you love this movie go to 3159 W 11th. St. In Cleveland, you won’t regret it. Below are some photos I took while I was there.
HummingBird Personalized Ornament, Hoodie, Sweater, Vneck, Unisex and T-shirt
In Nordic Christmas tradition we still have aHummingBird Personalized Ornament on December 13 with a “fairhaired maiden” coming from the dark into theHummingBird Personalized Ornament and warmth of the house carrying a crown of candles(radiant crown of Jupiter?) and followed by maidens carrying a candle/torch in hand, bringing sweet soft buns of wheat flour and mulled wine, singing Christmas carols. Other similar rites and even planting wheat in a pot, as in Hungary, is widespread throughout Europe. The fairhaired maiden is since a very long time called St Lucia after the Sicilian saint from Syracuse. Sicily seems correct, but nothing else about the attributes of the saint and how she is celebrated. Lucia means the “light girl” in Latin if that is a hint…(the 2d century saint Lucy has a remarkable resemblance to the previous antique protector of Syracuse, the nymph Arethusa who also fought of the sexual invites of more powerful men/gods and ended up as a pool of fresh water in Syracuse, while there was a church built over the pool of her own blood which Lucy died in. Arethusa was also one of the small deities helping Ceres to find her daughter in the underworld through her underground stream.)
Best HummingBird Personalized Ornament
I’ve never been particularly a ‘Christmassy’ person but now, as I’m getting older, I find myself becoming aHummingBird Personalized Ornament nostalgic, lol. Below is a post I wrote about my nicest Christmasses in the 60’s and 70’s. My first Christmas memories were about age 3-4. I was so excited by the prospect of Santa’s arrival, I was bouncing off the walls. My mum had to sleep in the same room for the night to keep me from waking up everyone else. She had a radio by the bedside and on it there came ‘reports’ every hour of how Santa’s sleigh had been spotting flying over various parts of the world. Eventually I wore myself out and fell asleep. I was convinced the next day I had heard hoofs on the roof in the small hours…
