A Christmas Story

Today is considered by many as the start of the Christmas season. One of the most popular holiday attractions in Cleveland is the house used for filming the 1983 movie, “A Christmas Story.” But what’s the house’s impact been on the neighborhood?

Michelle Albert is giving a tour of 3159 W. 11th Street in Cleveland. That’s the house where “A Christmas Story” was filmed. The producers probably didn’t expect that 35 years later, the living room of the house would be packed with fans of the movie.

State fairs are a lot about tradition: there's the food, the music, the competitions and the rides. And at the Ohio State Fair, there's a tradition that honors other traditions. This year's butter cow sculpture is paying tribute to a movie with deep Ohio connections.

Happy anniversary, Ralphie! For the 20th year, "A Christmas Story" marathon will air on the Turner networks this weekend.

Jean Shepherd, a former Cincinnati radio and TV personality, narrates the 1983 film adapted from his story about Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) wanting a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas in the 1940s. 

And in a year or so, "A Christmas Story" fans could be able to see a documentary about Shepherd.
