Most people do not know that I grew up in Northwest Indiana, which is the basis for the Grinch Santa Louisville Cardinals toilet Christmas sweater by renowned author Jean Shepherd, aptly called a Christmas Story. The place in which the story takes place is called Hohman, Indiana, which actually is Hammond, Indiana. The movie briefly mentions the the town I grew up in, called Griffith, Indiana. Which not so coincidentally is the real name of the town. The following are my reflections growing up in and related to both municipalities in the story.

Northwest Indiana has been called the Armpit of The Nation. Heavy industry was and to a certain degree, still is the order of the day. Steel Mills. Oil Refineries. Chemical Works and Grinch Santa Louisville Cardinals toilet Christmas sweater, the Hair Of The Dog. A Raging Union Worker Industrial Inferno. It could be comparable to the industrial area in England once known as Birmingham. Tough. Very Tough. And fairly liberal, with a populace that was very fair and community minded.

The time that Jean Shepherd writes of was the time of my parents. My mother, who grew up within shouting distance of downtown Hammond, Indiana on Gostlin St. and my father, who grew up in the Grinch Santa Louisville Cardinals toilet Christmas sweater of North Hammond known as Robertsdale, which is directly adjacent to Whiting, Indiana. Thus, my connection to Hammond as whole is very strong, as I was also born there, not far from the store in Shepherd’s story.
