One Seattle man decided to take his Christmas decorations to the next level this year with one amazing trick! It’s a real-life Clark Griswald.

Patrick Kruger’s neighborhood is known for doing over-the-top Christmas displays…and his wife’s license plate says “GRSWLDS.”


Kruger, 41, and an architect by trade, bought a 14-foot-tall Christmas tree last Saturday and placed it in the front window of the Seattle home. He then sawed off the top six feet of the tree and placed the tree top on his home’s roof, making it appear as though the tree had crashed through the roof.

To make it look realistic he also built a platform on the roof to make it look like something had pushed the shingles.
