Christmas Story Musical Coming To Fox This Holiday Season


It may be Spring, but in Hollywood there's news involving Christmas music.  It seems that Fox has greenlit the Christmas Story musical to be shown 'live' on the network in December.  This being a Christmas Music-related project, we have to point out that while we adore the movie....music and songs aren't something that jump out to us.  So, there's good news here for X-mas music fans:  we bet that we'll be getting some new songs into the canon of Christmas tunes once this show goes from stage to primetime.

From Variety:
A Christmas Story” will be the subject of the next live musical at Fox, Variety has learned. 
The production, which will air this December, will be based on the Broadway musical version of the beloved film of the same name, about a Midwestern boy named Ralphie who wants nothing more than a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. The film has achieved cult status since its release in 1983, with TBS annually airing a 24-hour marathon of the film during the holiday season.

Despite this news, it is still not time to listen to Christmas music, folks.

The Hour is Upon Us

Less than 24 hours until we can crank it up and put away the Halloween stuff.

Our friends at Buzzfeed summed it up really well thusly:

Yes! Today is *The* Day!

It has been 311 long, agonizing days.  But we made it!  Today marks the turning point towards the holiday season.  Sure, there's still that pesky Thanksgiving and it's needy stuffing to be dealt with, but let's be honest:  it is all Christmas from here on out.

And that means, officially, that we can now tune into Christmas music.  Go ahead, break out the She and Him Holiday record.  Or that weird Bob Dylan Christmas in the Heart album from a few years back.  You can!  Nobody is going to judge.

The countdown clock on the homepage now says ZERO.  Let's celebrate with a little "Baby it's cold outside."
