Sparky Griswold, are you in there??? 'Christmas Vacation' is one of my holiday favorites along with 'A Christmas Carol' and 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I love the scene when Sparky Griswold, who is desperately trying to have the ultimate Norman Rockwell Christmas with his family, lights up the exterior lights on his house. Aah, the fun, frivolity and laughs ensue! With that in mind, I look forward to seeing this house in Sarasota every year. There's so much to take in: gingerbread men, reindeer, toy soldiers, candy canes --- and, of course, Santa. I live about a half-mile away and I think I can almost see the glow lighting up the evening sky. I love their enthusiasm and over the top Christmas spirit.
