10 Facts You Didn’t Know About “A Christmas Story”

What does Playboy Magazine and A Christmas Story have in common? Did Raphie really curse? Find out this and more!


Christmas is upon us.

We are in the thick of the holiday season. So, allow me to say Merry Christmas! Yes, I  said ‘Merry Christmas’ and not ‘Happy Holidays’. Boo hoo. Turn on your television at almost any time during this season and you will likely see the iconic 1983 classic, ‘A Christmas Story’. Sparks of nostalgia follow shortly after Ralphie walks down the stairs dressed like an Easter bunny. However, I bet you never knew these fun facts about the film. Read on and impress your ugly sweater vest wearing inlaws, friends and that one creepy ass cousin.

  1. 1 A Christmas Story started as a short story series in Playboy!


    A Christmas Story is based on Jean Shepherd's 1966 book, In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash. However, there is a much sexier backstory at play here. The book started as a series of short stories published in Playboy. Childhood ruined. You're welcome.
