Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfairSex: Played with. While skipping Christmas was Luther's idea, Nora willingly and eagerly goes along with it. In one scene she discusses their plan and puts all the blame on Luther [[spoiler: and again when they learn their daughter is coming home with a fiance]]. Also, throughout the movie, Luther receives far more ridicule and scorn than Nora for skipping Christmas, even though she willingly joined his plan.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: The neighbours would have left them alone if they had just turned over their inflatable snowman to put up in their yard. Though given they asked by surrounding the house and shouting in with a megaphone like police its understandable that the Kranks would not do so.

Blair Krank (Julie Gonzalo), the daughter of Luther and Nora Krank (Creator/TimAllen and Creator/JamieLeeCurtis), departs for a Peace Corps assignment in Peru, where she'll be during Christmastime. The Kranks, along with their entire neighborhood, have always made a huge deal of celebrating Christmas with decorations and parties, but after their daughter leaves and they realize they spent over $6,000 last year to celebrate, this year they elect to go on a cruise in the Caribbean instead. They won't be celebrating Christmas this year like they'd always done previously no decorations, no parties, no gifts, no fiberglass snowman on their roof...

* UnsportsmanlikeGloating: Even after Luther has caved in and he asked to get the house decorated, the neighbours first make claim they are only doing it for his daughter and in spite of how supposedly selfish he was the whole time, despite how damn vehement they were to do so throughout the entire film.
