Those who watch A Christmas Story at least once every year will be very familiar with the Leg Lamp Stocking. This highly eccentric holiday furnishing is inspired by the hideous lamp that Ralphie’s father receives in the mail. The glowing lamp is shaped like a woman’s leg wearing fishnet stockings and the lampshade is made to look like a tasseled skirt.
The Leg Lamp Stocking is far more bearable than the actual illuminating lantern in the movie. It hangs from your chimney or mantelpiece with attitude. The words A Christmas Story are outlined in red on the base of the orange shade. Those who may have been tempted to buy a leg lamp to commemorate the movie can now settle for a stocking.
