A Christmas Story Treasury: A Tribute to the Original, Traditional, One-hundred-percent, Red-blooded, Two-fisted, All-American Holiday Movie by Tyler Schwartz is a fantastic companion to the movie. It contains all of the most memorable stills along with buttons on the edge that when pressed read aloud the most famous lines from the film. I can't say whether or not we have all come to love this movie. Perhaps it has just become a tradition along with the rest of the holiday season like it or not. My family loves it and it makes them laugh every year. Personally, the awkward characters and the bizarre situations they find themselves in make me uncomfortable, but I can't help watching it... again and again.
A Christmas Story: Behind the Scenes of a Holiday Classic by Caseen Gaines takes a deeper look into the movie and discusses the characters and the actors who played them. For those crazy about the film and want to learn more about it, I recommend this account.
