The marathon has become a cultural phenomenon—many families tune in and watch the movie at least once—some watch several times. But no one watches all 24 hours, right?Christmas TV writer Joanna Wilson trains her expertise on the 24-hour marathon of A Christmas Story to find out what really happens when you watch all 12 screenings of director Bob Clark’s classic Christmas movie non-stop, commercials and all.

    Wilson really is a queen of Christmas, as she once again captures the joy and details of the season by going off the main road. This book does a great job of pulling out lots of great details from the cult Christmas classic, A Christmas Story, while throwing in a lot of cross references to other loved or scarcely known holiday films. Perfect book to get you into the Christmas spirit, not only by exploring the big fantastical elements of holiday entertainment, but also settling into the part that is mostly about cookies, pajamas, and staying warm with loved ones.

    I loved it! I could picture Joanna in her living room the entire twenty four hours that she watched the marathon. I think I want to start a Christmas in February tradition in my own home.
