National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Factual error: Prior to the cat being electrocuted, Clark is seen plugging the lights into a 110 volt outlet. However, when Rusty resets the breaker, it is a double pull breaker that is reset, which typically provides 220 volts, and the breaker is off instead of tripped. (01:09:00)

Factual error: In the scene where Clark is working on the lights the full moon is shown. This is December 14th according to the advent calendar. On December 24th when Santa's sleigh goes sailing over the moon, it is still full.

Factual error: When Clark is sliding on the saucer, he shoots out a shower of sparks when he crosses the street. Those old saucers were made of aluminum, and aluminum can't create sparks like other metal does.
