* Surely Blair and Enrique could have celebrated Christmas on their own, right? Luther and Nora could have still gone on their cruise and told Blair to either come along with Enrique or just celebrate at home.
* Considering the front page news they made and the crook who attempted to steal things, what would have happened if Luther and Nora still went on their cruise? Their home would have been a huge target for any thief, and Luther could sue the newspaper and the neighbors for damages.

**** That's an urban legend. "Pre-tanning" is not healthy, and does not protect your skin. It, in fact, adds to the damage you're doing to your skin, and makes you more at risk for skin cancer. Sunblock. Use it. Get a spray tan if you want to look tan.

*** The film is somewhat inconsistent with exactly how long Blaire and Enrique have dated/known each other.



* If Luther needed a tree so badly (and was being charged $75 for the dead one), why didn't he go to another lot or get an artifical one from a big box store? Sure, the artifical ones (at least the 7' ones) can run $75+ but it also lasts 10 or more years
** Because Nora wanted a real tree because Blair wasn't to find out about the plan to skip Christmas. Look how she reacted when the neighbor'so tree, with Chicago Bears ornaments on it.

*** It's too bad he wasn't Mayinatec and had always celebrated the Rebirth of the Sun or some other really nonChristian holiday. Under Hollywood Logic, that would still exist, if obscurely.

** They may have not wanted to have to go through the effort of putting stuff up. Just unraveling lights alone takes some work let alone everything else, and they're not even going to be there to enjoy it. Of course, if the neighbors are really that obsessed with it they probably could of gone inside, threw a few decorations into a box, went back outside, plopped the box in front of them, and said "Here, you do it!".

*** Christmas has always been an important holiday in that neighborhood. It's part of what helps give them a sense of community. $6000 is probably spent buying gifts for everyone, making the street and their home as spectacular as possible, Special outfits. Christmas parties. Etc. It's an obscenely expensive time of year, but the Kranks were always willing to buy into it for the happiness of their daughter. Without her around this Christmas, there's no point. Sour grapes. The neighbors took it personally.
