The Eleventh Day of Christmas

Home Alone (1990) is a holiday classic starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, a boy whose family leaves him behind accidentally when they fly to France for the holiday.  He is left to fend for himself and defend the home against a pair of comic burglars.  Hijinks and hilarity ensue!

Written by John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus, the film is very much geared toward family audiences, but what is Christmas if not a time for the family?  The movie spawned a slew of sequels, none of which truly capture the magic of the first, but all of which offer some chuckles.  Maybe I’m nostalgic because this movie came out the year of my birth, but I think it’s a Christmas winner!

About bpaige08

I am one of those infamous 20 somethings, fresh out from under the college umbrella. I have always had a deep love for all things pop culture: movies, television, music, books, and (although I cringe to admit it to the nameless mass reading this) celebrity. Acting is my dream, although I currently need to pay off Uncle Sam before I can pursue my lifelong ambition. But that hasn't stopped my passion. I am also passionate about food, animals, and the environment. No, I am not a vegan. No, I do not want to be one. I like eggs. And cheese. They rock. I am TOTALLY open for suggestions, comments, and complaints. Feel free to harass me for my writing style or tell me how much you agree with me.
