Cops Forced Into Being Grinches When Man's Christmas Spirit Becomes Dangerous

Anyone who's ever done their best to go every extra mile possible when it comes to setting up for the holidays, knows just how close we can be to going from festive and cheerful, to inches away from pulling a Clark Griswold and absolutely losing it.

The holidays can be an incredibly stressful time for tons of reasons. There's gift shopping to be done, decorations to put up, family members to coordinate seeing (good freaking luck if they don't all live in the same area), and most of call, needing to pick out the perfect Christmas tree.

As much as we all love seeing the Peanuts gang realize that their tiny little decrepit tree really isn't all that bad, we're definitely a lot more picky when it comes to finding that perfect cone-shaped fir to sit in the corner of our living rooms. Whether you're buying them from a lot or cutting one down yourself, it can be something of a complicated process, one full of tough decisions.

As such, it's probably not surprising that when a man from Sudbury, Massachusetts found his perfect tree, he wasn't going to let anything stop him from getting it home; not even the fact that it was bigger than his freaking car...

Local police responded with a mix of shock and amusement upon spotting a man driving a vehicle with an immensely large tree that almost encompassed his entire vehicle driving down the street.

“Sudbury PD would like to remind you to transport your Holiday trees responsibly,” the caption read. “One of our officers stopped this vehicle on Route 20 today!”

While the police force is taking this seriously, their Facebook audience are not without a sense of humor either.

“Must be Chevy Chase,” meaning we're not the only ones who instantly think of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation when we see something like this.

Another asked, “Clark Griswold in Sudbury?”

Please be sure to stay safe during the holidays. Shared does not want any of you to get hurt or hurt someone else over a Christmas tree.
