Now that December has arrived, the countdown to Christmas has officially begun. And what better way to kick that off than with a movie that will have you laughing so hard you may cry. I give you another of my favorite Christmas movies and one that helps kick off my Christmas season. Readers, I give you...
This movie is beyond hilarious!! It's a holiday classic for a good reason! If you love physical comedy (I'm a HUGE fan of it), you will love this movie. What better way to deal with all the stress the holiday season brings that with a movie that puts a comedic twist on it all.
In case you haven't seen National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, let me tell you about it. Clark Griswald has always wanted a traditional family Christmas: family coming to stay, getting the tree, decorating the house. Well, he gets it and far more than he bargained for. As one thing after another goes awry, Clark's sanity starts to wobble.
My favorite scene is when Clark and family go to the snow hills to enjoy sledding. Clark has been working on a special kind of varnish at work, and decides this would be the best time to try it out. (Never mind that the varnish is meant for food and not aluminum sleds) Well, he races down the hills at lightening speed. It's hilarious.
There's also his Christmas lights display. After overdoing his house lights a bit, the first attempt yields no results. However, when he finally does get the lights to work, he shorts out the city. (My husband enjoys that scene)
This movie is one laughing scene after another. Curl up with a bowl of popcorn, a warm blanket, and enjoy to your heart's content.
