The film, which was primarily drawn from material in Shepard's 1966 book ''In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash'', has come to be embraced as a perennial holiday favorite. It eventually spawned a play, as well as two "sequels": the made-for-TV ''Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss'' and 1994's ''Film/ItRunsInTheFamily'' (aka "My Summer Story", not to be confused with the Creator/{{Kirk|Douglas}}/Creator/MichaelDouglas collaboration), both of which are notable in that none of the original film's cast members are in either of the others (save actress Tedde Moore [Miss Shields], who appears in the latter). A DirectToVideo sequel called ''A Christmas Story 2'' was released on October 30th, 2012. You can watch the trailer for it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Bed8rNx-Sw here]]. A ''much'' better-received ScreenToStageAdaptation went to Broadway that same year, followed by another national tour the next holiday season.

** Ralphie flies into this when beating Scut. The only intelligible phrase is "no-good stinkin' bitch".

* LiterallyPrizedPossession: The leg lamp is a "major award" that Ralphie's dad wins in a contest and proudly displays in the window. It's a ridiculous lamp, but he prizes it simply because he won it. Also, the Orphan Annie decoder that Ralphie eats so many boxes of cereal for turns out to be nothing but an advertising gimmick, leaving him disillusioned.

* PekingDuckChristmas: After the neighbors' dogs eat Mrs. Parker's turkey, Mr. Parker takes them to a Chinese restaurant, where they eat Peking Duck (though Ralphie calls it "Chinese Turkey") and sing carols with the owners.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: One interpretation of the Chinese restaurant scene suggests the carolers were slipping into JapaneseRanguage on purpose, either to get a rise out of their boss or to cheer up the Parkers after their Christmas dinner was ruined.
