Fans of the Christmas classic A Christmas Story have another chance to experience Christmas in the original house where the movie was filmed this year. Bidding begins Dec. 1 at 5:30 p.m. for a two-day and two-night stay that includes scheduled activities for four, as well as tickets to the Great Lakes Science Center.

Activities include film screenings and a large, FRA-GI-LE Major Award crate delivered to the front door. Winners will also receive a ton of complimentary swag, but bidding is not for the casual fan. Winning bids in years past have come in between $3,000 and $5,000. 

The best part (besides shooting a BB gun in the backyard)? All proceeds from the charity auction go toward A Christmas Story House Foundation, which provides grants to qualified residents for home restoration projects.
