Home Alone, as you probably know, is one of the most popular Christmas movies ever. Say “Christmas movie” and the film that would spring to mind is Home Alone. Which is why, this month on Reinvent, we picked its protagonist, Kevin McCallister (played by Macaulay Culkin in the film) to be our ambassador for this month’s theme.
However, when a pair of devious thieves decide to rob his ginormous house, and he had to face the real struggles of adults, he had to find a way to get by, and get by he did. He set up clever booby traps all around the house for the robbers, and he found guidance in an old man (whom he previously thought was an evil murderer) whose family seemed to have forgotten him, as well.
We could all learn a thing or two from the clever Kevin, and that is, we should be careful what we wish for, and that getting what we want won’t permanently make us happy. What matters is, to be surrounded with people you love, Christmas or not.
