Clark Griswold’s 25,000 Holiday lights

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation has to be one of my favorite movies of all time. With Christmas right around the corner, it about time that I watch it at least 5 more times before months end. There is a scene in the movie where Clark (Chevy Chase) puts up 25,000 incandescent lights on his house to have the best-looking house on the block. Have you ever wondered what it would actually cost to power that amount of lights for just a month? Let’s just say there is a reason that we now use LED lights instead of incandescent.

Alaska and Hawaii are the most expensive states to power lights, Could you imagine spending that much just for lights alone on the holidays?
