The ultimate Christmas debacle film is National Lampoon's "Christmas Vacation". America's favorite family, the Griswold's, get into a heap of trouble, courtesy of dear old dad, Clark Griswold, during the holiday season (involving covering the house with 25,000 lights, getting a squirrel out of the tree, and cousin Eddie).
