Wordless Wednesday – The Griswold house

8 Dec

I love National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!  There are so many funny parts from the squirrel in the tree to the cat electrocuting itself to the tree being lit on fire!  But, one of the most stand out moments in the movie is when Clark finally gets his Christmas lights to work on the house and they cover the entire house and blow the power to the surrounding streets briefly!

There is actually a house in a neighborhood about 5 minutes away from where I live that is always lit up at Christmas time like the Griswold house.  They cover the entire house in lights as well as the front lawn (like a carpet).  I have no idea how much their electric bill is but I sure do enjoy driving by and seeing this spectacle, as many others do.

    Wow!!! There’s a house not far from ours up here in Abingdon that we call the Griswold house, but this one takes the cake. I’ve got to find out where this place is and see it in person.
