Scott Schwartz, who played the character Flick in the film, explained to The Huffington Post last year how the tongue-frozen-to-the-flagpole scene was filmed:

"They painted and made a fake flagpole. And there’s a little hole in it, the size of, basically, your pinky nail, with a vacuum cleaner tube, basically a suction" Schwartz said. "No, I did not really stick my tongue to the pole. They can’t do that. There’s child labor laws."

Even though I hate clicking through the list...I LOVED the article.
Didn't know a lot of these things...gives me a greater appreciation of, and desire to watch the movies again.
Thanks!

Dysfunctional family, weird food, problematic christmas technology and props. Christmas vacation is the best of the holiday movies.

I dis agree hutterite. The best Chirstmas movie is Die Hard

Arm...you're right, Die Hard is a good movie. MrsH is correct, too. This format for lists is excruciating to go through, and a hog when you're using your cel phone data plan from the truck seat. I wish they'd just post the entire list, and let you click on whichever list entry strikes our fancy.

Well, while I truly love Polar Express, I am not a big Tom Hanks fan. The actual train sounds are real, and excellent. However, you omitted two of my most favorite Christmas movies. Christmas with the Kranks, and Fred Claus my all time favorite. Neat modern story line, and outstanding music. I watched it with my grandkids last August, and getting ready to watch it again.

A list of 15 favorites does include some great films worthy of anyone's top 5. But Christmas Vacation is glaringly absent and the remake of Miracle on 34th Street trumps the earlier one.
