Pottery Barn is selling a line of items inspired by National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Truthfully, it’s so cool, there are but three words to describe it: “Hallelujah! Holy s—!”

The line contains a variety items ranging in price from $32.50-$299. Included in the line are sheet and pillowcase sets featuring a print design highlighting some of the best visuals from the classic holiday film, from the dried-out turkey to the Griswold’s home decked out in lights. This author’s personal favorite is the $99 Advent calendar which shows the aforementioned Griswold home and Cousin Eddie’s “tenement on wheels” parked in front.

In a statement on the line, Pottery Barn President Marta Benson said, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is such an iconic holiday classic. We were beyond excited to partner with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring this collection to life and add some fun and nostalgia into people’s homes. It’s also the perfect gift for those who are fans of film, like myself!”

To view and shop the line, head over to PotteryBarn.com/ChristmasVacation. Perhaps picking up an item or two will help you become one of the jolliest a–holes this side of the nuthouse.
