Have you been forced to dig a Christmas tree out of the frozen earth with your bare hands? Have you electrocuted a cat and burnt said tree to cinders along with most of your presents? Has your brother-in-law emptied an RV's chemical toilet into your storm sewer? Then your holiday is still shaping up to be better than Clark Griswold's.
Sure, we might all be envious of Sparky's sizable house, upper-middle-class lifestyle, and visible-from-space Christmas lights display, but excitement and hijinx aren't all they're cracked up to be.
By the end of Christmas Vacation, that beautiful house is essentially in tatters without a single window intact - and good luck getting that feline-infused carpet clean again.
The Griswolds' exploits are always enjoyable, but we'd never want to have to deal with the clean-up.
