I always like to start December with National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
It is my all time favorite Christmas movie and it never gets old!
Through all the mayhem that is involved with a Griswold Christmas, you still leave the film with a sentimental lump in your throat. Between the laughs are hidden bits of real holiday warmth. Watch as Clark watches old home movies in the attic, has the best freak out known to man, look at his eyes as everyone of those 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights blasts through the darkness of the night, find out what it’s like to find the perfect tree, observe the best turkey scene ever made, watch little Ruby Sue’s face as she learns Santa might actually come see her this year, and try not to feel proud as Clark watches his lawn ornaments rocket past the moon and he quietly says
“I did it.”
You did do it Clark, and you’ll keep doing it every year for the rest of my life.
We start our Christmas season with that movie too…been watching it ever since it came out. Love it. I saw it in the theatres with my family waaaayyyy back when! LOL We watch it Thanksgiving night. Always makes me laugh!
