Burning is the theme for Illustration Friday this week. The holidays are upon us, wether we are ready for them or not. One of the recent holiday movie classics the I like is Christmas Vacation(National Lampoons Christmas Vacation). If you think your Holiday is going bad, just remember it could be worse. The movie is full of family events and gatherings that do not turn out as planned. Uncle Lewis is the cigar smoking and bad toupee wearing uncle, who burns down the family Christmas tree, which I interpreted above. I like the movie because it reminds us that when things get tough or that life is not going our way that sometimes it is best just to laugh about it, especially during the holidays.
