Do you have a favourite holiday film? What about a holiday tradition? Maybe watching certain films IS your holiday tradition, alongside a couple of cups of eggnog and your favourite naughty treats. Do you curl up under a blanket on Christmas Eve with your favourite people for your annual flick? Which is it? Do you have more than one? Or maybe you all sit around and daydream about what it would be like to be inside your favourite Christmas flick. Which one would you pick?
Home Alone 1 and 2
These two are the quintessential Christmas flick (as well as just any other time of year). Who doesn’t like watching Kevin Mcallister thwart the botched and bungled robberies of Harry and Marv? Filled with just enough comedic drama to entertain viewers of all ages, these two in the Home Alone franchise are particularly endearing to many around the world. With part one happening in his hometown of Chicago, and part two taking place in New York City, little Kevin finds himself time and again trying to come up with genius ways to stop the relatively dimwitted robbers. With other celebrities such as John Candy in Home Alone and Tim Curry in Home Alone 2, both films are littered with interesting cameos by famous faces. Be sure to watch for Donald Trump in Home Alone 2 – you won’t want to miss it.
Speaking Of Home Alone….
Have you ever lusted after that great big, beautiful house the Mcallister’s have? Who hasn’t, right? Not only that, but to own a house of that calibre AND be able to afford to take the family to Paris for Christmas? It sounds like the perfect life, doesn’t it? Did you know that the house which is actually located in Winnetka, Illinois last sold for over 1.3 million dollars? You’d have to have one heck of a job to be able to afford all that at Christmas, not to mention the fact their tree is frequently loaded with presents in both films! How much do you spend at Christmas? Does it differ year after year or do you stick to a pretty strict budget? Chill Money have released a great infographic all about Christmas films, and the price it would cost to redo the Mcallister house after Kevin’s adventures – you might be surprised at what you learn from it!
Spending Habits During The Holidays
Do you have certain things you can’t be without during the holidays? A special treat that just makes the season or something that is definitely a tradition for you and your family? Do you put money aside specifically for these special treats every year? Many people do, and in fact some of the tradition can include heading out to the store to pick out these treats and snacks to watch your favourite movies with. So what traditions do your family enjoy during the holidays?
So whether you are a fan of daydreaming over your favourite Christmas flicks or you’re on the hunt for the perfect snacks to eat while you partake in your annual movie traditions, one thing is for certain – Christmas is a time of year that continues to be magical year after year regardless of how you spend it or who you spend it with!
