Filmotomy Christmas Advent Calendar 2018 – Day 2

Best Christmas Decorations

When your in-laws are grating on your last nerve, your kids have lost interest in traditional festivities and there’s a rusty RV in your driveway, you decide to ignore it all and focus your time and energy into something else.

This ‘something else’ for Clark Griswold in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is covering his house from top to bottom in Christmas lights.

What begins as a fun, festive activity becomes his only form of escape, a love/hate situation – a man on a mission with only a stapler to help him.

After disappointing his entire family when the godforsaken twinklies don’t work, Ellen steps in to save Christmas by switching the power on. And much to everyone’s delight, the obnoxious yuppie neighbours are momentarily blinded, scrambling about in their metallic shell suits.

Merry Christmas, one and all.
