With Christmas only a few weeks away, there’s arguably no better way to get into the holiday season than with the Griswold family. Because this year, along with watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation at least once and quoting it year-round, you can now set up your home with scenes from the 1989 film.
The National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Holiday Display from Department 56 is a massive decorative set piece featuring sold-separately figurines, structures, you can piece together to set up your very own display of the Christmas classic.
Along with locations like the Griswold Holiday Garage, their fully-decorated house, and Cousin Eddie’s RV, the set also offers figurines from classic scenes in the movie, like good ol’ Cousin Eddie dealing with a full shitter and Rusty connecting extension cords for the Griswold Christmas lights. Plus, all of the light decorations on the display are fully functioning. It’s all the festive cheer of Christmas Vacation with none of the actual dysfunction. Maybe a little, still, depending on your home dynamic.
All of the figures for the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Holiday Display are sold separately, and can be customized into countless recreations from the film.
