It’s that time of year again when Christmas specials come on every night and no matter how many times you watch them, they never seem to get old.

“A Christmas Story” is one of those classic films that’s played through the month of December in many households, especially on Christmas Day. While this 1983 movie can be watched through subscription services like Hulu, TBS or TNT OnDemand, and Sling TV, it’s best known for its 24-hour stint on cable on Dec. 25.

This year is no different. The 24-hour marathon will be playing on TBS from 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve until 8 p.m. on Christmas Day, the network confirmed in a press release.

"This marathon is consistently among television’s highest-rated programs around Christmas, and last year’s marathon reached nearly 35 million viewers across TBS and TNT. This year throughout the marathon, interstitials will feature fan-favorite AEW wrestlers performing a special table read of some of the film’s most iconic scenes."

Following the announcement that this viewing tradition will remain intact in 2020, many fans took to Twitter to share their excitement.

“A Christmas Story” follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley) as the adult version of Parker (Jean Shepherd) narrates his memories of his favorite childhood Christmas. The only thing he wanted was a Red Ryder Air Rifle. His wish comes true, but after getting warnings he'll "shoot" his eye out, he finds himself breaking his glasses as a bullet ricochets off.

There are other important parts of the movie too, like Ralphie's father's infamous table lamp "award," which features a women’s leg as its base with a lampshade on top. Versions of the lamp have since made their way into homes around the U.S. by way of replicas and smaller Christmas tree ornaments.

Catch the 2020 "A Christmas Story" marathon starting at 8 p.m. EDT on TBS on Dec. 24.
