We've officially entered the last month of 2020 and after one whirlwind of a year, we're ready to throw up some Christmas lights and sing some carols.
Given the current conditions, we might have to skip out on the caroling part, but the Christmas lights are a must, especially since today is National Christmas Lights Day!
With December just beginning, it's perfect timing to bring you 3 must-stream movies that will make you light up with glee, or more accurately light up with blindingly awesome Christmas lights.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
It wouldn't be Christmas without the Griswold family in attendance, trying to pull off the best Christmas ever (the keyword, "trying). This vacation will always be known as one of the more spectacularly bad family reunions to be viewed on the big screen. The holiday classic offers some hilariously cringe-worthy moments from the Griswold clan and their extended family as they tackle the holiday at home, and also features some pretty stellar Christmas lights.
Deck the Halls
If we had to judge a movie based on what we thought the budget for Christmas lights was alone, this would be the hands-down winner. While most people want to put up their lights to spread holiday cheer, others want their house to also be seen from satellites in space. When you live in a small town and you've been deemed the Christmas guy, you aren't going to easily give up that title to the new guy in town... which means you have to start a Christmas war. Let the lightshows begin!
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
There's no town you'll ever find as obsessed with Christmas as Whoville, and with a Whoville Christmas of course comes some epic Christmas lights! You can think of Whoville as your local Candy Cane Lane, because rain, snow or shine, the streets will be glowing with lights of all colors, shapes and sizes, and the Whovillers will most likely be serving up hot chocolate and singing. Of our picks, this one is sure to make you wish you already had your lights up.
