Happy Fifth Day of BlogFestivus!
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation has to be one of my top two all-time favorite christmas movies. I love everything about it. One of the best lines in that movie has to be "Merry Christmas! Shitter's full." I laugh just thinking about it. Classic.
There is, however, a part that I'm not a big fan of. It's the part where the cat chews through the christmas tree lights. I suffer from ostrich syndrome, so I spent most of my childhood pretending that the cat was absolutely fine, just a little static-y.
How is this relevant? Well, the fifth gift of the BlogFestivus song is Five Golden Rings, and Christmas Vacation provided me with the inspiration. You'll see.
We worked on it for days,
Strung the lights in just the right way
Hung the ornaments evenly spaced
Decorating that was truly aced
How were we to know that it wouldn’t last the season
We were proud, proud, proud, didn’t think of any reason
That by Christmas eve
The tree would leave, the tree would leave
It all happened so suddenly
As we sat back to admire the tree
A snap a pop a yelp, and then a hiss,
Rising smoke a sign something’s amiss
The tree turned into a burning ring of fire
The cat wasn’t the same once he chewed right through that wire
The tinsel burned, burned, burned,
The tree’s on fire, the tree’s on fire
