Retro RePost: National Lampoons Christmas Vacation 30th Anniversary

On December 1st, my favorite Christmas movie, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, turned 32!  

32 may not exactly be a celebration-worthy anniversary, but if you go back to 2019, I wrote an article for The Retro Network celebrating the big 30th!  

Over the past several years, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation has ascended to cult following status.  It's arguably most people's favorite movies, and the merchandise machines have been pushing out new items every year to celebrate the several decades-old film.  

My wife and I typically watch this movie nightly during December.  We like to fall asleep with the TV on, and this time of year we pop the DVD in before bed.  The next morning we usually try to recall the last thing we remember before falling asleep.  We waited until Thanksgiving this year, and could hardly contain our excitement as we put the disc in and pressed play.  

This article was fun for me to look back at the making of this film.  It has several interesting tidbits on the production and behind-the-scenes information that you may have not known before.

It's a beaut, Clark!
