Nothing says the holiday season so much as the viewing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I just love that movie - so many laughable moments... cousin Eddie, Snot the rottweiler, the cat that got fried for nibbling on the tree lights and the squirrel scene. The first time I saw the squirrel scene, I laughed until I had tears running down my face. No matter how many times I see it, I still think it's terribly funny.
The one DVD player we have in the house only plays UK DVDs. I was surprised and pleased to find a UK copy of it at our local Sainsbury's for just a fiver along with two other Christmas movies that really aren't worth mentioning. Christmas Vacation was the little nugget of gold in the three for five packaging.
Here is the famous squirrel scene. Take a watch and laugh like a loon... I always do!
