Clark Griswold said it best when describing the true sense of the holidays when he described the view out his window as "the silent majesty of a winter's morn... the clean, cool chill of the holiday air... an asshole in his bathrobe, emptying a chemical toilet into my sewer." You to can enjoy Clark's vision in Blooming Prairie as B to Z Hardware is going to be putting up a replica of Cousin Eddie's RV for some classic holiday photo opportunities.

Unfamiliar with the scene I referenced above from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation?

The post made by Blooming Prairie's B to Z Hardware yesterday invites people to follow the store as they prepare to dazzle and amaze this holiday season.

"Whose ready to get a photo in front of Cousin Eddie's RV? We will be having a 24 foot replica of Cousin Eddie's RV at Have a Very Prairie Christmas in downtown Blooming Prairie! We will be having different photo opportunities including props such as holding the hose in front of the RV! Stay tuned .. this is only the beginning!"

On top of the RV replica, there will also be a 'griswold-mobile', you know the iconic station wagon from the same film, at B to Z. I wonder what they are going to be doing to it?

B to Z Hardware has really embraced the community aspect of a small Midwest town. This fall they had a pumpkin patch for the kids, and are always up to helping out various activities or causes in town. With COVID causing headaches for businesses both large and small it's great to see a local business step up to keep the spirit of the community up when times are tough.
