WADSWORTH — Homeowner Greg Osterland is so obsessed with "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" that he's turned his house into an ode to the movie, the Medina Gazette reports.
For the sixth year in a row, he has recreated character Clark Griswold's light display at his home at 173 Duane Lane. The 1989 comedy tells the holiday story of the Griswold family, with Clark, played by Chevy Chase, decorating his home with 25,000 twinkle lights.
“When I was growing up, Christmas Eve, that is what we would do, go to the church service, come home — no matter what time of night it was — and we would make the trip out to see my aunt and uncle and they would start that movie,” Osterland told the newspaper. “We wouldn’t get home until midnight, 1 a.m.”
He and his wife Rachel use the display to raise money for the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Gazette said.
