12 Days of [Movies Before] Christmas

The 12 Days of [Movies Before] Christmas is a semester break special borrowing from the traditional 12 Days of Christmas (that occur after December 25th). The point is to get you into the spirit of the season by recommending one movie per day leading up to Christmas.
You are more than welcome to provide an appropriate food (or snack) and drink that would be enjoyed best with the cinematic selection. May your days and wintry evenings be merry and bright in front of your big screen. Enjoy!

Day 12 (I’m countin’ down peeps): National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

This selection is made ’cause it’s a great way to kick off the event and… ’cause we’re on vacation! IMHO this movie gets better each time I watch it. Maybe it’s because I know how Griswold feels when he tries to have that perfect Christmas only to have things go from bad to worse. This movie is for adults, though. Family and kiddie selections to follow as the days progress.

Memorable line from the movie: “Sh*****’s full!”

High-five to my movie companion who is assisting me with the list.
