Channel your inner Kevin McCallister with this “Home Alone” inspired shopping guide
Home Alone celebrates its 27th birthday this month, and celebratory cheese pizza in the backseat of a limo is definitely in order.
Released in 1990, the iconic John Hughes and Chris Columbus holiday film follows the antics of 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) as he defends his home from nefarious burglars after he’s accidentally left home alone during a family trip to Paris. From the timeless after-shave scene in the bathroom to the introduction of fake yet quotable gangster cinema (“Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal” in the now notorious Angels with Filthy Souls), Home Alone serves as a must-watch holiday movie.
Before hitting play on the movie for the one-millionth time, shop these Home Alone-inspired essentials that will help you channel your inner Kevin McCallisters, because let’s face it — he exists in all of us.
