    The look on Ellen's face when Clark says, "Honey, do you honestly think I would check thousands of tiny little lights if I wasn't sure the extension cord was plugged in?"
    1:06 - 1:08 The look on Clark's face was "I wonder if the extension cord is plugged in."

    BEST holiday movie, period. Christmas Story is also a classic, but in a very different way. You just can't beat the cast, writing, music and timing in the Griswold movies.

    I'm sure we all love to beat up the decorations if our Christmas lights didn't work.

      You should hear the song 12 Pains Of Christmas on part of the song a guy is singing about setting up the lights and each time he keeps getting agitated until the point he blew a fuse and quit.

    RIGHT after Thanksgiving, my family is all about Christmas, esp. Christmas lights, decorations, thoughtful presents, cooking and baking, service to others, CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS, Christmas music, spiritual stuff, all kinds of stuff...
    I LOVE Christmas... There is just so much to it... Thanksgiving is food, football, friends and family. Halloween is candy/trick or treating, scary movies and dorky dances. 4th of July is fireworks. Easter is candy, Easter eggs, Easter egg hunts, and religious stuff. St. Patties day is green pastries and wearing green/getting pinched for not wearing green (but does this ever even happen anymore?) Valentines day is romantic stuff and chocolates/candy, sometimes not much of either... New Years is non-alcoholic or alcoholic drinks and parties.
    But Christmas is AMAZING... :-)

    1989 - back when you could go to the movies, laugh and be entertained. No social shit, no political agendas (can't stand politics). Just a movie to entertain and relate to.

      They had to turn on extra power. If you watch closely you see the whole neighborhood go dark and then after they turn on the auxiliary nuclear it lights back up.

    One of my favorite Christmas comedy movies. Actually... probably my fav. Then I like that Ernest Saves Christmas, although no way as funny as Vacation. I think it is Ernest's mannerisms and antics that make me laugh on his movies.

      Ernest Saves Christmas suffers from a distinct lack of Ernest.

      +Rob Tremewan ~ You forgot to add IMHO in your comment. You're stating that as fact, when in reality, it's just not true. It *is* funny, and to this day it's one of the season's most popular films.
