December 12: Deck the Halls/Jingle Bells

December 12: Deck the Halls/Jingle Bells

Sequel to: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (Film, 1989)

A Christmas Story saw a direct-to-video sequel nobody asked for show up on shelves this year. Back in 2003, it was National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation's turn to be sullied. I'm talking about National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure.

It's not even worth mentioning the plot, because there barely is one. Randy Quaid and Miriam Flynn return in their roles as Eddie and Catherine, with the "original Audrey" Dana Barron resuming her role. And there's a monkey. That's about all you need to know.

Today's song of Deck the Halls/Jingle Bells is an instrumental arrangement by Nathan Furst that plays over the credits. One of the few, non-horrible parts of this sequel.
