Few holiday movies are as instantly identifiable—and quotable—as "A Christmas Story." For decades, people have loved tuning in to see the hilarious story of Ralphie Parker and his epic holiday quest to get a BB gun for Christmas. Of course, there’s so much more to the story than that, including his dad’s precious leg lamp, which tragically gets broken at some point.
While the kitsch lighting fixtures are undeniably tacky, leg lamps have become a universal symbol of "A Christmas Story" fandom—and a cheeky way to celebrate the holidays with a piece of unexpected home decor. And lucky for you, you can grab a leg lamp of your own just in time for the holidays—and beyond. Snag one of these charming lamps to display in a place of honor at yours.
