This guy is spreading holiday cheer with a 'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation' display


A holiday set designer in Pennsylvania decided to get a little more creative than just displaying Santa and his reindeer this year.

Dan Hartman of McMurry, Pennsylvania, said he wanted to spread some holiday cheer, so, instead of going traditional, he designed a Christmas display dedicated to the classic holiday movie, "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."


Here's the full view.

Hartman's onto something. The movie is still a solid favorite on social media.

All the great moments from the Griswold family's Christmas are represented in Hartman's display from the station wagon carting a tree with the roots still attached to Cousin Eddie holding a beer can and emptying the RV's--um--sewage tank (to put it politely).

"Well, we had an older RV, and we just decided one year to decorate it with Christmas lights; kept going with it every year and decided to add Cousin Eddie a couple of years ago," Hartman said.
