What Holds the Most Value in Your Heart?

Christmas—a season filled with joy, laughter, music, and gifts. As time passes by, a lot of people forget about the true essence of this holiday, and instead focus on it’s more materialistic side. We forget that this is a time for love and for family. In the movie, it centers on this plot. While Kevin McCallister first found it exciting to be alone and to explore the world on his own, he soon found out that being alone can only be fun for so long, especially during Christmas time when everything just makes you want to be with your family and loved ones. The movie also teaches us about second chances and forgiveness—that no matter what other people say or do, we should find it in our hearts to forgive. After all, forgiveness is a gift we give to ourselves. By forgiving, we let go of the emotions that make us feel burdened and heavy. This Christmas classic is more than just about the holidays. It carries tips and tricks we can all learn from about life—in any season, time, and place.
