Last year we went to Hammond, Indiana. The visitor's center there had a fun, and free A Christmas Story window display set up. They had about 6 window displays up, all featuring different scenes from the movie.
If you would like to see them all, you can go to last year's post HERE. We liked it so much, we decided to go back again this year. While we love the displays, we were there to visit Santa's Mountain.
It's free to visit Santa, but Warner Bros. decided to be real Grinch-like and not allow you to take personal photos with Santa on the mountain. If you want a picture, you have to pay $5. I figured it was reasonable enough, so we went ahead and had a family photo made. It comes with a really cute A Christmas Story frame, but my scanner sucks and was doing a crummy job scanning it properly.
The best part is getting to go down the slide! What kid didn't want to ride down that awesome slide (minus the face kicking elf) when watching the movie!? This one was a smaller version, but fun all the same.
No visit is complete until you recreate the famous flagpole scene!
A Christmas Story window displays and Santa visits go on every day, through the rest of the year at the Hammond, Indiana visitors center. If you are in the area, I highly recommend stopping in for a visit!
Do you watch A Christmas Story every year like my family does?
