2006 A Christmas Story Hallmark ornaments

Okay, I'm trying to get the hang of posting pictures so I thought I'd try posting the 2006 Hallmark ornaments for A Christmas Story.

The name of the ornament is "Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown" and it is about 3 1/4 inches tall. This ornament was a November "surprise" introduction and came out right before the Hallmark Open House weekend.

You can also see that one at
