Since I'm a late 80's-90's kid, my vote was for Christmas Story. Although Nat'l Lampoons is crazy hilarious, A Christmas Story just brings me back to my younger years when my older cousins used to dare me to lick the pole too! "Fragilee....must be italian" <-- classic. haha AND did anyone see the new Hallmark leglamp ornament!! LOVE IT

This is a very fra-gi-lé question, as it pertains to two of my favorites. BUT, I am going to have to edge out CV just a wee minuscule bit and say ACS is better.

I love both of these movies but, I think I can watch Christmas Story more than Christmas Vacation. I look forward to Christmas Story more than CV, maybe because they don't play it as often except for on Christmas eve for 24 hours. Or maybe it's because I went to see Christmas Story at the theater when if first came out as a kid. I don't know. I do love them both though, tough question!

That's a tough one but I think I have to give it to Christmas Vacation, but only by a tiny margin. I just think CV is funnier and more engaging.
