This is the real and actual house that was utilized for the exterior shots of the famous 'A Christmas Story' house. It is situated in the Tremont range of Cleveland, and visits are directed almost each day.

The winning individual for the bid can spend and stay for two nights and two days with up to three visitors at the 120-year-old house used as a part of exterior shots for the film and whose interior was restored to resemble the movie family's home.

The auction on eBay starts on Tuesday night and keeps running for a week. The winner can stay at the house on Dec. 24 and 25 and at a luxury hotel on Dec. 26.

Among the possible outcomes are spending Christmas Eve spending in the bedroom of the movie's 9-year-old Ralphie Parker, who longs for getting a Red Ryder air rifle for Christmas. Winners can likewise relax in the sparkle of the major award the family patriarch wins in the film, a lewd leg lamp his wife hurriedly dispatches.

Proceeds from the fifth yearly auction benefit the Christmas Story House Foundation, which gives grants to restoration and upkeep of homes in the Cleveland neighborhood. Winning offers have run from $3,000 to about $6,000.

Steve Siedlecki, executive director of the Christmas Story House and Museum expressed that they had a variety of individuals stay in the house and a year ago it was a couple. They have had also a group of four and once it was only one guy.

The house and gallery have film props, costumes, memorabilia and many behind-the-scenes photos from the movie in view of Jean Shepherd's stories about the northwest Indiana of his childhood.

More than 45,000 people visit and stay in the house each year, most in the weeks leading up to Christmas, Siedlecki added.
