When is Christmas Vacation on TV 2012? National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation airs on ABC Family Dec. 12, 13, 20, 21 and 25.
While it’s got some adult language and content, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation remains one of those annual must-see holiday classics. It’s served as a cautionary reminder that no Christmas is perfect, no matter how hard we might try to make it that way. (It also reminds us how NOT to do exterior illumination and how NOT to empty an RV’s toilet tank.) Catch an edited-for-TV version during ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas.

As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen, and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations. However, things go awry quickly. His hick cousin, Eddie, and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property. Even worse, Clark’s employers renege on the holiday bonus he needs. Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Juliette Lewis, Johnny Galecki, Doris Roberts and Julia Louis-Dreyfus star.
