It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s coming fast! A favorite of mine as a kid was the Advent Calendar. For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, Advent Calendars counted down the days until Christmas with fun little calendars. Usually hidden behind the numbers of the calendar were little toys or candy. Little gifts to have fun with before Christmas Day. With that in mind I present to you my calendar full of Christmas Joy. Every day we will knock another down the peg and share a bit of Christmas joy either in the form of a film, a theme park celebration or a special event or show. We will showcase something new and fun every day until Christmas! So get ready to unwrap and share some holiday cheer!
3 Days til Christmas-National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
What can be said about Clark W. Griswald and the gang? It’s a classic family Christmas. There’s the tree, the dinner, family, lights, a holiday bonus…and it all goes the way it should, and does with everyone. Horribly wrong.
Christmas Vacation reminds us that it’s not about the money, the presents or any material things that make a Christmas special. It’s all about family, and being around those we love…even though they make us nuts.
