#2- National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (1989)

Since it is Christmas time, I thought I would add to the list 1980's Christmas movies. This movie shows our favorite family, The Griswold's, and their preparations for Christmas.  Whether it be covering the entire house with lights, bringing home a real Christmas tree with wildlife and all, or having family members pump sewage waste in your front yard... nothing says Merry Christmas then watching Clark Griswold and his shenanigans. I think my favorite character would have to be the deaf grandma.  Nothing is better then her family prayer of the pledge of allegiance.
