Department 56 A Christmas Story

Introduced in 2008, Department 56's A Christmas Story village conjures up the nostalgic and heartwarming A Christmas Story movie classic. It will surely be enjoyed by the whole family. The perennial Christmas favorite 1983 film, "A Christmas Story," is the humorous tale of a young boy named Ralphie, with one thing on his Christmas list- a "Red Ryder" BB Gun. In 2012, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The Department 56 houses, characters and accessories are faithful reproductions of those seen in the movie, including Ralphie's house, Triple Dog Dare, and the infamous Leg Lamp.
