Streaming Sunday - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Like clockwork, every Christmastime we all break out our favorite holiday movies, snuggle together under a warm blanket, crank up the heat and relax on the couch. For each of us those movies can differ greatly, however there are a handful of classics that the majority of us can't get enough of. You could be helping Ralphie decode Little Orphan Annie's message, aiding Kevin in protecting his house against the 'Wet Bandits', or you're joining Tiny Tim in wishing, "Merry Christmas, Everyone!".  Either way we all love to throw on "A Christmas Story", "Home Alone", or one of eight versions of Charles Dickens' novel "A Christmas Carol".

However those aren't the only movies we love to watch at this time of year. Back in the early eighties we were introduced to Clark Griswold and his family in the National Lampoon's movie "Vacation". Falling in love with Clark's bumbling ways, Rusty and Audrey's adamant distaste for their family gatherings. (NOTICE: Rusty is played by John Galecki of Roseanne and Big Bang Theory fame, and Audrey is Juliette Lewis of Natural Born Killers and What's Eating Gilbert Grape fame.)

So please enjoy Chevy Chase's unforgettable performance in this holiday classic, "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."
