Man’s “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” Yard Display Causes Problems

Imagine if you will, someone who really loves “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” Like, loves it so much, that he annually recreates Clark Griswold’s iconic light display. Jeff Norton of La Mirada, California is just such a man.

This is the fourth year Norton has decorated, and the display is apparently causing problems. Specifically, a new addition in the guise of a fake second-story added to his house. According to the local ABC affiliate, the City wants that part removed. If Norton doesn’t comply, he faces weekly fines.

“I will more than happily pay that fine. I’m not necessarily happy, but I’ll do that to keep this up for the whole entire community. I’m not gonna take this down – no ifs, ands or buts,” Norton said. “I said there’s no way in this world I would remove that until January 1st. It is a makeshift, fake facade that I put up on my roof.”

We all know who’s really complaining, though.

Keep Going!
