National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

Ask someone to name their favorite holiday classics and it's tough to imagine the person coming up with a list that excludes National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. The 1989 comedy is uproariously funny (albeit outrageous) as it showcases Clark Griswold's (Chevy Chase) overly ambitious plans for his family's Christmas celebrations. His pure intentions are derailed and devastation strikes — he's left with an electrocuted cat, more (disgruntled) family members than he anticipated, his 25,000 twinkle lights trigger a city-wide power shortage, and a SWAT team turns up at his home. Normal Christmas occurrences, right? The stellar supporting cast is made up of Beverly D'Angelo, Juliette Lewis, Johnny Galecki, Diane Ladd, Doris Roberts and Randy Quaid.

    I can relate to the BB gun and shooting your eye out. I received an air rifle
    for a Christmas present back in the early 60’s. One day i was
    in the basement shooting at the concrete walls and cans I had set up as targets.
    When I spotted a spider walking on the concrete floor I waited till it was crawling
    between my legs and without thinking pointed the rifle straight down and fired.
    Imagine my shock when instantly I felt a sharp pain between my eyes and centered
    on my nose when the BB richoted straight back. I just stood there realizing
    that if the BB had bounced an inch or 2 left or right I would have spent the
    rest of my life as a 1 eyed person entirely due to childish stupidity .
