    The glow danced on the faces of children and adults who gathered on a recent December evening at what’s become an annual Christmas tradition: the transformation of Jeff Norton’s La Mirada home into a “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” display. This year’s design, which includes a faux second story on Norton’s home, was almost canceled by code enforcement, because the addition was unpermitted and deemed unsafe by the southeastern L.A. County city. “What does it mean to take that down?” Norton, 46, said recently, pointing to the fake second story on his house, clad in a red Santa Claus cap. “It means Christmas is over.” The entire display would have been put on hold if he had been forced to disassemble the plastic addition meant to make his home look more like the suburban Chicago house in the 1989 comedy starring Chevy Chase. Norton said at a minimum he had faced a $1,200 fine, which he’d planned to pay, viewing it as the price for keeping the display up. Jeff Norton’s house in La Mirada includes an animated...
