*Could also count as FridgeHorror: Aunt Bethany asks Clark if his house is on fire, and Clark tiredly replies that it's just Christmas lights. It could be taken as a sign of her old age, but then I realized that the heat generated by the lights was actually causing the wood siding of the house to smolder, and she was smelling the smoke coming off of it!

Added DiffLines:
*** Clark also mentions that Frank Shirley lives on "Melody Lane, with all the other rich people", making it out to be a very exclusive address. Cousin Eddie could easily have found him based on this information. Although, one has to wonder how he got past the community's security...

** That's not counting all the damage sustained by the Griswolds' house and belongings throughout the movie; even if you don't adjust for inflation, they'd be looking at thousands of dollars' worth of repairs. And how much do you want to bet that the Chesters (the Griswolds' yuppie neighbors) will file a lawsuit against the family for all the property and emotional damage ''they'' suffered that holiday season?

***The Guest room bed is too small. Russell and Audrey are jammed next to each other (which granted, was for that joke) and they're tinier so there's no way Ellen's or Clark's parents would fit comfortably in there. Maybe they underestimated or always planned for Audrey to give up her bed...

** It's not that he's never decorated the house, but that he's never decorated it to the extent he does in the movie.

* When Clark and Rusty are putting up the Christmas lights, Clark says that he's "always wanted to do this" implying that they've never decorated the house before. So why are the lights all tangled up? Shouldn't they be new lights?

No it wasn't.
* Borders on FridgeHorror: When walking up to the Griswold's house, Aunt Bethany asks "Is your house on fire, Clark?" It could be argued that she was simply confused by the brilliance of the lights. However, the heat they generated was probably burning the house, and she could smell the wood construction smoldering!

* FridgeHorror: Clark's not going to be able to afford that pool he wanted. His Christmas lights consumed so much power that they caused a blackout across town and another generator needed to be turned on at the plant. You can even see the electric meter start rapidly spinning after the lights turn on the first time. When the electric bill comes in, [[YankTheDogsChain he can say goodbye to his Christmas bonus]].
