Share your Griswold Christmas
 
We all have them in our neighborhood.. or even on our commute. Or... is it you? :deal

Share your local Griswold!

I need to get a better picture of this house... it's from last year anyway.

I know a lot of people think it's goofy, but I love to see houses lit up like this.

Do I want to do that much work? Oh, hell no. Does it make me smile when I see it? :nod

This cement truck is around the state. Funny thing, the company it belonged to was named Griswold construction. I think they got bought out, but anyway.

You can find it on youtube also, but no great videos. It does rotate still though, some there must be a nice slipring setup on it.

Found a decent one; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7S2IkPF5j08

I agree, they're neat to see and drive past, but I'm not sure I'd want to be their neighbor... unless I had blackout curtains. :D

I saw one of those the other day. Quite the sight in person.

Giswold's are back
 
Cracked me up seeing them bring the Griswolds back together for these Old Navy Commercials & the MOM still looks the same as she did back in 1983!
