The movie "A Christmas Story was exactly how it was in he 50's at my house. The BB gun thing, decoder ring, school and the neighborhood kids is all down pat.

Where is Die Hard and the Nakatomi Tower? This is a holiday movie! Please reconsider all those love stories you call Christmas settings and think about the holiday cheer in Die Hard.

"Love, Actually' another Holiday movie?  Really???  (they must have had a hard time coming up with "actual" Holiday movie locations, so they figured they stretch the whole idea a little)

Would have loved to see the house from Meet me in St Louis.  No one can sing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas like Judy Garland.

BEEN TO THE CHRISTMAS STORY HOUSE!! FREAKING AWSOME!!! THE ONE THING THAT BLEW MY MIND WAS THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A PLACE THAT GOT HIT WITH TONS AND TONS OF SNOW AND THEY KNEW THIS PLACE IN CLEVELAND ALWAYS GOT DUMPED ON WITH SNOW. BUT NOT THAT YEAR!! THEY HAD TO SHIP TONS OF SNOW TO THE LOCATION AND HAD TO SHOOT THE OUTSIDE SHOTS SO QUICK SO THEY WOULD BE DONE BEFORE THE SNOW MELTED. I CAN'T REMEMBER HOW MUCH SNOW THEY HAD TO SHIP IN.

IT'S VERY CHEAP TO GO SEE IT. IF I REMEMBER RIGHT I THINK IT WAS ONLY 10 DOLLARS TO TAKE THE TOUR AND THEY USALLY HAVE ONE OF THE CAST MEMBERS TO COME THERE AND TALK AFTER THE TOUR. VERY COOL!!!!!!!
