Christmas in The World of Wonder: Merry Christmas From The Griswolds

As you know from the September of Soundtracks, I love the Vacation movies! And of course, at Christmas time, no film is better than Christmas Vacation! It stands out for so many reasons! The quotes are endless: "THE BLESSING", "Can't see the lines, can you Russ?", "Merry Christmas! Shitter's full!" and many more! The film's cast is amazing including series regulars Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo and Randy Quade. Add a young Juliette Lewis, Doris Roberts, Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Brian Dolye Murray, the late great William Hickey and the well known voice of Olive Oil and Betty Boop, Mae Questal. Here's a little soundtrack post to help you celebrate your own Christmas Vacation. Enjoy!

Christmas Vacation is one of my family's all-time favorites. We watch it each December, and laugh every time!

I was lucky to be able to see this on the big screen for the first time in 20 years two weeks ago when our local movie palace (The Colonial Theater - Keene, NH) ran it as their annual holiday film. Still every bit as funny as it was when I first saw it.

Thanks for the soundtrack! I've had the theme song playing in a loop in my head for a week now.

I know the Colonial very well. It's such a great theater! Had the honor of performing there as well back in 1993. Also saw many a good film there. When they ran West Side Story I went pretty much every night I could. Also got to see Rocky Horror there one Halloween.
