a ebay christmas story

This has to be one of the best and most bizarre Christmas gifts I have ever scene. Bid on a chance to win two nights in the Christmas Story house on Ebay.

“The seller will book the flights for the winning bidder and guests and cover the cost up to $1800 (including air travel cost, fees, and taxes for all four people.) Every effort will be made to book the flights for less than $1800 for the 4 people, but in the event the cost exceeds $1800, the winning bidder will need to pay the difference to the seller. The flights cannot be used separately from this auction experience. The winner will not have a choice of airlines or flight times, although the seller will try to accommodate their requested itineraries. The winner may not resell the flights or any other portion of this experience. The winner and guests using the air travel will need to be the same people who will be taking part in the experience. The full schedule and details after the jump.”
