About This Quiz

When "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" starts playing on repeat, it can only mean one thing: Christmas is just around the corner! You know the story: Clark Griswold loves his family so much that he takes the holidays into his own hands. He means well, but his over-ambitious plans and his wacky relatives quickly derail the Christmas that Clark had in mind. 

When you're putting up the lights and searching for the perfect gift, how much are you like Clark? Do you manage to roll with the punches, or do you lose it enough to seek revenge? Once we see how well you manage to survive the Aunt Bethanys and Cousin Eddies of your family, it'll be easy for us to figure out how much you resemble the Griswold patriarch. It might be more than you think! 

Even if you can't afford to be an elf, there might be more of Clark Griswold's holiday spirit running through you than you think. The holidays bring out the best — and the worst — in all of us. But in the end, they remind us why we put in all the extra effort every year. 

Are you 100% Clark Griswold? Or are you more like Mr. Shirley? Spend some of your holiday time with us, and we'll let you know!
