August is usually pretty stressful as we all are busy getting kids back to school, summer is almost over, and it's usually insanely hot. Cinergy Entertainment in Amarillo has a plan to help you get over that stress, and take in some holiday cheer, with "Christmas In August."

The event makes use of the new Cinergy drive-in. To help spread some holiday cheer a few months early, they'll be showing two modern holiday comedy classics. The films will show on Fridays and Saturdays.
The first one is the modern classic Elf starring Will Ferrell. It's one of my favorites, following a man raised believing he's an elf, who then goes on a journey to find his real father once his elf dad (Bob Hope) tells him the truth. It winds up being like a holiday themed version of The Beverly Hillbillies.

The other film being shown is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. This movie is an absolute classic about a family trying their best to have a nice Christmas together, when anything and everything goes wrong. Another one of my favorite holiday films, it has several absurd, laugh out loud moments.

Since the films are being shown at Cinergy's drive-in screen you can take some coats with you, crank up the air conditioner in your car, and bring some hot chocolate in a thermos to really get that "holiday vibe."
