BB guns, shooting your eye out, bad Santa Claus visits, overcrowded malls, annoying neighbors, elementary school bullies and terrible Christmas gifts all add up to one infamously classic holiday film: A Christmas Story. And now, we've shopped out the most memorable moments for your holiday pleasure.
Check it out. I triple dog dare you.
You'll Shoot Your Eye Out
Mother knows best, but there are times when we wish she didn’t. Protagonist Ralphie has one such experience when his sole Christmas wish, an “Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle, with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time,” is rebuked on the grounds that “you’ll shoot your eye out.”
Mom did not think Ralphie’s thick-rim specs were sufficient protection (and ultimately, she was right), however, maybe she would have reconsidered had he worn more fashionable frames. At least the lettering on this statement necklace indicates the wearer has the foresight to see the bullets coming.

Bunny Suit Necklace
Ralphie’s favorite Christmas memory may be finally receiving that much sought after BB gun, but ours will always be of him reluctantly descending the stairs, dressed head-to-toe in a fluffy pink bunny suit.
This necklace pays subtle tribute to all the unwanted gifts we received in childhood from distant relatives.

I Can't Put My Arms Down
While Ralphie never fails to crack us up, little brother Randy is hands-down the funnier of the two. From his picky eating to hiding out under the sink because "daddy’s gonna kill Ralphie," Randy is the little brother we all wish we had.
One time when it is nice not to have a Randy in your life? When you’re running late! Randy repeatedly slows the boys down on their way to school as he struggles to move in his excessively puffy snowsuit, in which, he notes through tears, he can’t "put (his) arms down."
