If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be as surprised as I am to find out you can buy an entire Christmas Vacation village on Amazon this holiday season. The collection has all of the famous moments memorialized in ceramic so when you aren’t watching it (again and again) on TV, you can enjoy it on a shelf near you.
National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise are iconic films that gifted us with characters like Cousin Eddie, Todd and Margot, Aunts Bethany and Edna, and of course, all of the Griswolds. But National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation seems to stand out from the rest because it centers around the chaos of the holidays and the ups and downs of spending so much family time together. Now, thanks to Amazon and Department 56, we can have our own little slice of the movie to cherish forever with their Nation Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Village Collection.
Once you see the entire collection, it is impossible to pick a favorite piece because they remind you so much of one hilarious scene after another. Regardless of which ones you choose, you’ll be the talk of every (virtual) holiday party. The pieces range in prices from low to high, so they’re an investment for sure. But, considering all the movie has given us over the years, I’d say it’s an investment worth making. Get your National Lampoon’s Christmas Village in time for Christmas Day!
The centerpiece of the collection is a hand-painted “Griswold Holiday House” which is an exact replica of the Griswold’s abode (though Clark would be disappointed with the lack of Christmas lights). It’s got the wreath-covered front door, snowy roof, and there’s even a setting so the little lights actually twinkle.
There’s no Christmas Vacation without the cutting of the Christmas tree. This figurine depicts one of the first scenes of the movie and the how much of a struggle it was to get the giant squirrel-habitat home.
Department 56 knows all the memorable scenes that we want to see from the movie. This figurine is of Rusty and Clark unraveling the Christmas Lights before the rest of the family arrives.
Of course, if you’re going to start a collection, you’ll need Cousin Eddie’s RV. This piece also lights up so it’ll look good on your mantle until you move it next month. Plus, anytime someone comes over and asks what it is, you can say with confidence, “That there’s an RV.” For that, it’s pretty much worth the money.
Of course, if you’re gonna purchase the RV, you really need Cousin Eddie himself — and what better figurine to represent him than the “Merry Christmas. Shitter’s full” pose? All we need is another figurine of Todd’s face seeing Eddie in all his glory to really make it complete.
Speaking of Cousin Eddy, the moose mug is a staple for any fan of the movie — which means this figurine should be too!
“Fire It Up Dad!” A classic line from Rusty, and a classicly hilarious scene where Clark in fact, does not fire it up. This figurine is perfect for when you have the Griswold Holiday House lights off!
