This morning, a Kidlist reader wrote me an email and said, “We watched A Christmas Story for the first time with the kids and now I am dying to show them the leg lamp in the windows of houses, of course now I can’t remember at all where I have seen them.” So we posted her question to the Kidlist Facebook page and everyone chimed in! If you are looking for a house with a leg lamp or just want to get in A Christmas Story mood, check out the houses in the list below!
