Spending the holidays watching films about the holidays may not be a priority on some people’s lists. But in my house, we ring in the season with a movie each year.

And that movie made the number one spot on our list. A film about the Griswold family and their disastrous holiday season, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is funny and filled with holiday mishaps.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – 1989

The modern Christmas classic meets the Griswold family. If you’re familiar with the Griswold family, then you know their adventures usually lead to disasters.  They’ve decided to play it safe by staying at home and having all the family stay with them in their home.  It wouldn’t be a Griswold movie without a couple unexpected plans to occur.  We promise this movie will be fun for the whole family.
