So God Made a Mother Collection ➔

National Lampoon fans everywhere are about to have the hap-hap-happiest Christmas EVER this year, thanks to the existence of this Christmas Vacation village scene. And the best part? The entire thing is on Amazon!

I mean, come. On. We’ve been waiting our whole nine lives for this!

The pieces are sold separately for ease of mixing and matching, but you’re gonna have a hard time convincing us not to get the whole dang line of figurines.

For starters, there’s the beloved Griswold holiday house (and yes, it lights up!). 

And the garage overflowing with all things Griswold.

And of COURSE, Cousin Eddie’s RV

 

Complete with Cousin Eddie himself cleaning out the you-know-what.

 

“Dad, you taught me everything I know about exterior illumination.” – Clark Griswold

And there’s Clark in his pre-exterior illumination form . . .

Annnnnnd post-exterior illumination form. Lookin’ a little frazzled there, Clark…

Who also happens to take tree-trimming VERY seriously.

God Bless Aunt Bethany.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh! There goes Snots on the run.

And remember when Clark’s yard decorations famously take flight in the night sky?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And no Christmas Vacation set would be complete without the tree-transporting Griswoldmobile, which just so happens to be my personal favorite piece in the entire set.

We’re obviously not the only ones excited about this set, as Amazon reviewers everywhere have banded together to rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars. And really, there’s only one thing left for us to say: It’s a beaut Clark, it’s a beaut!

Also, A Giant Inflatable National Lampoons Christmas Vacation RV is on Sale, and You Know You Want One

6 Timeless Christmas Stories For Every Family

In: Living, Products We Love
Family

Every year in preparation for Christmas, along with the twinkle lights and the greenery, the crèche and the stockings, I unpack my family’s collection of timeless Christmas stories. Sometimes I try to convince the kids to let me read the books to them. But the children are all big now and busy and much too old for stories. Actually, that’s not entirely true. No one is ever too big for stories. And while many of us might think we are too busy, it is only through slowing down and savoring some of the season’s simple joys that we can truly...

This Nostalgic Ceramic Christmas Tree Brings Back Memories of Christmas With Grandma

In: Living, Products We Love

There are few things from my childhood that bring back as many magical memories of the holidays as my grandma’s ceramic Christmas tree. Every year after Thanksgiving, she would take a small box down from storage in the attic and carefully unwrap the decoration from its soft nest of tissue paper. She would check each delicately-painted branch to ensure nothing had been chipped or broken, and inspect each brightly-colored bulb. I remember touching the smooth, opaque green branches, marveling at their snowy tips, and counting each point of the star with my forefinger. She always placed the tree as the...
