As generations come and go, so do the movies that define their childhoods. Being born in the 80’s allows me to claim Home Alone as one of my most memorable childhood films. Twice over, in fact; it is also one of my favorite holiday films. So I wasn’t surprised, as much as I was excited, when this beloved film was recognized as a nominee in the #YourHome Awards honoring the best homecoming scenes in movie history. From a child’s perspective it had all the elements that any little boy would love: an older brother’s room filled with things he’d never let me play with, an entire house at my disposal (including the contents of the fridge), and plenty of snow to play in! Even now I find the film still hits my funny bone and warms my heart during the holiday season when it is almost always on one network television station or another.
