Family's 'A Christmas Story' house may become Lego set
SYRACUSE, N.Y.- A central New York family is campaigning for their carefully crafted recreation of the house from "A Christmas Story" to become an official Lego set.
News outlets report that Jason Middaugh's small family project to recreate the house from the classic holiday film turned into a six-month undertaking. Middaugh says he and his family, who live in Marcellus, scoured the internet to find the 2,000 pieces needed to construct the home.
