Which Character from "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" are You?
by Jody Mabry

How well do you remember the Griswold family? Do you fancy yourself as a member of the clan? Take this quiz to find out which character from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation you most resemble.

Clark Griswold and the family took several memorable vacations on the big screen. One of the most memorable, but not an actual road trip, was their Christmas Vacation as depicted in the 1989 film "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." Who could forget the leader of the pack, Clark Griswold, played by Chevy Chase; his long-suffering wife, Ellen, played by Beverly D'Angelo; daughter Audrey, played by Juliette Lewis; and son Rusty, played by Johnny Galecki; along with Clark's parents, and perhaps most memorably, Ellen's cousin, Catherine, and her hubby Eddie, played by Randy Quaid. In fact, the character of Randy has remained so memorable that he continues to be the subject of numerous internet memes, specifically focused on the scene where he is draining the family camper's sewage into the storm drain in front of the Griswold abode. All's well that ends well, though, and a Griswold vacation always ends well.

So, if you want to know what "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" you're most like, get started with this quiz.
