It's Christmas time and the Griswolds are preparing for a family seasonal celebration, but things never run smoothly for Clark, his wife Ellen and their two kids. Clark's continual bad luck is worsened by his obnoxious family guests, but he manages to keep going knowing that his Christmas bonus is due soon. Written by
When Eddie barges in the house with Clark's boss, Ellen jokingly tells him this is the family's first kidnapping, which is actually wrong. In National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), Clark holds the security guard at Walley World hostage and forces him to take the family on the rides. See more »
The Christmas tree is visible then not visible from the same position in the dining room where Clark is sitting, especially before the first one burns down. See more »

"THE END" is lit up in Christmas lights. One of the bulbs pops, making the lit up "THE END" go dark. See more »
This is the one Christmas movie that I don't anyone can ever get tired of. Chevy Chase returns in the third installment of the Vacation series as Clarke W. Griswold as he tries desperately to maintain his sanity during the holidays with all of his relatives coming to stay under his roof and enduring all the mishaps along the way.
This is the funniest film in the series plain and simple. Chevy Chase has never been better. Christmas Vacation is filled with countless jokes and gags that it's impossible not to laugh.
