2. A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story The timeless story of Ralphie, the boy obsessed with getting a BB gun for Christmas has made it to Netflix! Despite the 1940’s time period and dated cultural icons kids will relate to the challenges, fears and desires of being a kid that really haven’t changed over the decades. It’s also a good reminder that Christmas is never as perfect as the other shows make it out to be.
