CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

We triple dog dare you to take a trip to Hammond, Indiana!

A new statue immortalizes a character from the movie "A Christmas Story," as he accepts the dare to put his tongue on a cold flagpole.

The movie is set in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, which was based on the city of Hammond.

Jean Shepherd, whose childhood stories the movie was based on, grew up there.
