A Christmas Story~ Santa's Mountain

Yesterday I shared with you the window displays of A Christmas Story at the visitor's center in Hammond, Indiana. Today is all about Santa's Mountain. Remember when Santa kicks Ralphie down the slide in the movie, telling him "You'll shoot your eye out?" They had their very own Santa's Mountain set up right there in the visitors center! For $5 you could climb up and have your photo taken with Santa. And if you tell him you want a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas, he'll say "No! You'll shoot your eye out kid!"


You could even ride the slide down. Minus the boot in the face, though I would have paid extra for that! ;)

 

As one more little treat, there was A Christmas Story flagpole outside the center. I couldn't leave without a photo opp!


 We had such a blast at the A Christmas Story set up, I can't wait to go back next year to participate in the other themed activities we missed this year!

Fess up! Have you ever stuck your tongue to a frozen pole?

  2. Judging from most of the pics you've posted over the time, I'm guessing your hubs is the type of man you can't talk into taking his cap of ever :)

  9. No I have NOT stuck my tongue to a frozen pole, but I have got my wet fingers stuck in an old freezer and had to have warm water poured on them. The scene with the flagpole always makes me cringe! eeewh!

    I love how you wrote this post! You are so fun. The only thing that was amiss in the Santa Mountain was a large bin of fluff at the bottom. Someone missed that point. lol

    1. hahahaha, I just saw your comment and I do admit I 'must' drop the 'hint'. What I usually do is give him three options to pick from and then he decides. I wanted a ring or some earrings or the necklace. He chose the necklace. I thought he would choose the earrings so I was surprised.

    2. Yes! I was thinking the exact same thing about the foam pit at the end of the slide! Would have made it that much more authentic, I think!
