Christmas Vacation gets wrapped up

Warner Home Video has started something of a tradition of releasing a Christmas title on Blu-ray around the holidays in a special Christmas-themed collector’s box. This year is no different as National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation gets a re-release in a fancy tin case.

In “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) attempts to create a picture perfect, old-fashioned Christmas for his family and invites his extended family to celebrate the holidays at his home. But a festive supporting cast including Beverly D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Juliette Lewis and Doris Roberts, 25,000 lights on the roof, an exploding turkey on the dining room table and a SWAT team taking siege outside soon help Clark realize that more does not always mean merrier.

The Blu-ray itself will be the same one currently available, but will come with a Santa Hat, drink coasters, a box of fake snow, a button and a Moose figurine. While not a cinema lovers dream, it’s a nice gift for the holidays.

Interestingly, the title is coming out pretty early for the holidays, arriving on October 27th for $39.92.
