For a lot of families it's a holiday tradition to watch Home Alone on Thanksgiving after the turkey dinner or sometime that weekend. It's a classic film that, for a lot of people, kicks off the Christmas season. From the music to the mischief, the movie is one of John Hughes most watched of all time.

Beyond Macaulay Culkin's rendition of Kevin McCalister, Home Alone features Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard, Catherine O'Hara, and John Candy. The movie was scored by famed composer John Williams and even netted him two Oscar nominations for the music.

While the now francised film series faded from its glory of the first two movies, the original Home Alone remains a sought after treat for the whole family. Its goal is to remind viewers that the most important thing is the people in their lives and not to take them for granted.
