Video of the Week: The Christmas Vacation house recreated in Stittsville

By Apartment613 on December 9, 2020

Many people are huge fans of the 1989 film National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, making it a holiday tradition to watch it at least once during the lead-up to December 25. If you’ve seen it, you’ll recall the insanely lit-up house, the classic wood-panelled station wagon and giant Christmas tree, and Cousin Eddie’s RV shenanigans.

A Stittsville family has painstakingly recreated the scene at their own home, sourcing props over the course of the past year. You can drive by 18 Cypress Garden in the evening to see it all lit up, but check out more on the story in the video below.
