LA MIRADA (CBSLA) — The home glowing from thousands of Christmas lights made famous in the Christmas comedy classic “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” has been recreated in La Mirada.
A fan of the 1989 movie, Jeff Norton’s recreation of the Griswold family home started when he purchased an RV – the exact same make and model as one used in the film.READ MORE: Actor Ricky Schroder Argues With Costco Employee About Mask Confusion

According to Medium, he also tracked down the same model of chainsaw used in the movie – a 1986 McCulloch – and bought the Santa display Clark Griswold destroys in the film from the original manufacturer.
This year, he added a 1989 Ford Escort Wagon and rented snow machines for the proverbial icing on his Christmas display. He’s also showing the film on a 65-inch TV set up outside.MORE NEWS: Mandatory Evacuations And Warnings Remain For Palisades Fire; Investigators Continue Search For Suspected Arsonist
