With Christmas only thirteen days away, i reflected back on my favorite Christmas Movie, Home Alone. Watching it reminded me of being a kid again. I remember wanting to be like Kevin McCallister defending my house from the Christmas robbers. While it may be over dramatic for a movie, it is an insanely epic and family-fun film.
There are various funny parts like when he orders a pizza and pulls a prank on the pizza guy by watching a movie about gang wars and firing a gun. I still get a kick out of it and have often thought about pulling that prank throughout my years; however, my parents would yell at me at even trying. "Keep the change you filthy animal."
Many of the stunts or tricks Kevin McCallister tried, I often tried to attempt. For instance, he sleigh rode in his house. As fake as the scene was, I got a lot of good and bad ideas from it. My stairs were positioned right in front of my front door and often would get yelled at by my parents but even better was when I watched Christmas Vacation and wanted to attempt this:
I would buy saucers to try and grease them up like Clark W. Griswald. Unfortunately it never happened. You know why . . . it's a movie!
My parents kept trying to tell me that but I didn't want to believe it because I was a little kid enjoying fun-filled Christmas movies. Who could deny me of wanting to do these activities. They looked fun and entertaining but not possible.
