Wishing you the hap, hap, happiest Christmas (48 hours early)

I think I might have Santa Claus beat on having a list and checking it twice.

As I’m wrapping gifts today, packing for our trip to Nick’s family in Brown County over the Christmas holiday and performing a dance to the weather gods to keep at bay the ice-sleet mix that is pelting most of the state so we can make it to my in-laws, I thought I’d take a minute to wish all my blog readers a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

And for those of you I forgot to add to the Werner Christmas card list this year, well, Daisy wishes you a festive holiday season too:

And because it’s all too appropriate and I just watched it and can recite all these from memory, here’s a few Clark Griswald gems to help you count down to your own hair-raising family gathering in a few days’ time:

Bethany: Is your house on fire, Clark?
Clark: No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.

Clark: Well I’m gonna park the cars and check the luggage, and well, I’ll be outside for the season.

Clark: Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?
Eddie: Naw, I’m doing just fine, Clark.

Ellen: Clark, Audrey’s frozen from the waist down.
Clark: That’s all part of the experience, honey.

Eddie: I don’t know if I oughta go sailin’ down no hill with nothin’ between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic.
: Do you really think it matters, Eddie?

Clark: I simply solved the problem. We needed a coffin… Er, a tree. There are no lots open on Christmas Eve. Lewis burned down my tree so I replaced it as best I could. Voilà.
Ellen: Are you okay?

Clark: I dedicate this house to the Griswold Family Christmas.
