Below is the synopsis of "A Christmas Story," per IMDb.

In the 1940s, a young boy named Ralphie attempts to convince his parents, his teacher, and Santa that a Red Ryder B.B. gun really is the perfect Christmas gift.

"A Christmas Story" still resonates to this day. The classic holiday comedy teaches kids about the importance of Christmas and the holiday spirit. It's about more than just presents, but at the same time, all of us were kids once. We know what it's like to long for that special toy during the holiday and the anxiety behind whether or not you will receive that gift. That's a feeling kids have during every holiday season. So "A Christmas Story" will always be relevant. The National Film registry would agree; "A Christmas Story" was inducted for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
