Christmas Vacation

Christmas Vacation

“I don’t know the guy who’s playing Cousin Eddie, but he’s dead on.”


Put engineer Nick Selhorst in a bathrobe, and we have a Christmas sensation!

After sending out our 2017 Christmas card (you can check out the full version here), we’ve received many delightful comments regarding Nick’s (frighteningly) accurate portrayal of Cousin Eddie from the 1989 holiday movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

For those who are familiar with the movie, you might notice that Choice One has a lot in common with Cousin Eddie. We deal with sewers on a daily basis. Several of us own some version of an RV. Many of us are a little clumsy. And we all do our best to have a positive attitude even when we’re stuck with the Jelly of the Month Club.

Indeed, I think we’re ok having something in common with Eddie (especially Nick!). In the end we don’t mind being the goofy cousin who enriches your holiday season with our willingness to be a little… unique. So in the spirit of Clark W. Griswold, “Merry Christmas to all and to aaalllll a good night!”
