Did You Also Grow Up Watching Home Alone Every Christmas?

Home Alone zoomed in on how the McCallister family left one of their children behind when they went on a Christmas vacation to Paris. This set the tone for a hilarious, light, and comedic movie. But, beyond this, the movie teaches us about respect, responsibility, and how family dynamics work.

Kevin McCallister, the protagonist, was the youngest child of Peter and Kate McCallister. In their family, he was treated poorly by his older siblings, and he felt like his feelings weren’t being heard and validated by his parents. This was the main driving force behind his sense of joy when he got left behind, all alone, during Christmas.

During the time he spent alone, he felt free. This led him to do what he always wanted but couldn’t do when his family was around—eat junk food, watch action-packed movies, and more. However, it wasn’t all fun, as he needed to defend himself and their home from burglars.

Home Alone is a series of comical interactions. Yet, through Kevin McCallister, we learn to be more responsible and accountable for our actions. And, through his family, we understand that communication and understanding are vital in maintaining respect in our homes.

Home Alone is the perfect Christmas movie for every family. But, it’s also a great masterpiece to watch whenever you need a mood boost. With that, we hope we were able to lift your spirit and teach you a thing or two through this list!
