About This Quiz

Pretty much everyone likes a good Christmas movie, and there is no doubt that "A Christmas Story" is one of the best. If you haven't seen it then you can just wait until Christmas rolls around again, because it's shown on TV all the time, as most good Christmas movies are. One cable channel even shows it for 24 hours straight! This movie was set in the '40s and gives everyone an idea of what growing up back then around Christmas time was like. The movie has a great script and fantastic setting, but what really makes this movie memorable is all the great characters.

Who can forget Ralphie? All he wanted was an air rifle for Christmas, but his mother, his teacher Miss Shields and even a Santa Claus at the local department store all tell him that he will put his eye out.  What about his dad, who was tormented by the neighbor's dogs and known as "The Old Man" or his loving but a little overbearing mother, or even Ralphie's two best friends, one of whom stuck his tongue on a flagpole, causing it to freeze. With so many cool characters, it will mean taking this quiz to find out which one you are the most like.
