The holiday classic, "A Christmas Story", and the famous Red Ryder BB gun was written and narrated by the late Jean Shepherd who had a home in Fort Lauderdale for some time in the '70's. The story was originally a chapter in one of his popular and hilarious novels recounting the semi-biographical childhood of a young working class family in the steel towns of northwestern Indiana. He later lived on Sanibel Island until his death in 1999.

I assume this inspired the annual The Christmas Story- Red Rider BB Gun.
