South Jersey Christmas Vacation House Back For Another Year
The Harbaugh family is at it again with their giant tribute to the Griswolds.
If you're not sure what I'm talking about, here's the quick rundown: a family from Mickleton in Gloucester County has been decorating their home for Christmas over the last few years in the theme of the movie 'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation' starring Chevy Chase. If you haven't seen it, well, I'm sorry for you. It's basically a national treasure at this point.
You can drive to Legends Court in Mickleton to check out Cousin Eddie's RV that will soon be full of toys as the Harbaugh family collects them in partnership with Toys For Tots every year. I went to check it out for the first time last year and, WOW. I was blown away by the dedication this family showed to getting every little detail correct.
For one, you'll first see the legendary station wagon with the giant tree Clark takes the Griswold family to chop down in what is easily two feet of snow. How the Harbaughs got the giant tree on top of that station wagon, I sure have no clue.
Next, you'll obviously be blinded by all the lights that basically engulf the home with a mock-Clark hanging from the roof. Then, you'll go to place your donation into Cousin Eddie's RV where he's standing out front of it emptying the, well.... *toilet*.
You'll also see the old cop car parked out front from when Eddie went and kidnapped Clark's boss after Clark only received a bonus consisting of a yearly membership to the jelly-of-the-month club.
This year, the Harbaugh's say spectators can expect some new additions to their display. WATCH:
If you haven't gone to check it out before, make sure you do. For one, it's a holiday activity you and your family can enjoy without having to worry about catching the coronavirus. Also, it's something that simply gets you out of the house for some holiday cheer. It's definitely a must-see.
