National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Intro
Christmas pretty much starts for my family on Thanksgiving day and because this is my favorite time of year, from now until Christmas, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Christmas songs.
This song comes from the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Movie. It’s the intro song “Christmas Vacation”. I love this movie so much and we usually watch it a handful of times throughout the Christmas season.
This song is sung by Mavis Staples
Everybody knows, there’s not a better time of year
Hear that sleigh, Santa’s on his way
Hip, hip hooray, for Christmas vacationGotta a ton of stuff to celebrate
Now it’s getting closer, I can’t wait
Gonna make this holiday as perfect as can be
Just wait and see this Christmas vacation
This old house, sure is looking good
Got ourselves the finest snowman in the neighborhood
Ain’t it fun, always on the run
That’s how it’s done on Christmas vacation
Let’s all deck the halls and light the lights
Get a toasty fire burning bright
Give St. Nick the warmest welcome that he’s ever had
We’re so glad it Christmas vacation
And when the nights are peaceful and serene
We can cuddle up and do our Christmas dreaming
We’re so glad it’s Christmas vacation
Peace and joy and love are everywhere
You can feel the magic in the air
Let the spirit of the season carry us away
Hip, hip, hooray for Christmas Vacation
Fa, la, la, la, la and ho, ho, ho
Jingle, jangle, jingle as we go
Let the spirit of the season
