Daniel Island's 'Cousin Eddie'
Daniel Island resident Dr. Brian Whirrett revealed his latest tribute to his favorite Christmas film Christmas Vacation on Saturday December 3 when he unveiled “Cousin Eddie,” a mannequin dressed as Clark Griswold’s quirky cousin Eddie, played in the movies by Randy Quaid. The newest addition to the massive Christmas array at the Whirrett home, located at 2477 Daniel Island Drive, piqued the interest of many a Daniel Island resident, so much so that when a rumor spread that the Daniel Island Property Owners’ Association had asked Whirrett to take the decoration down (they actually just asked him to move it off the public right-of-way), dozens took to the “D.I. Moms” and “D.I. Dads” Facebook pages to protest.
