90s Christmas: Home Alone 1 & 2

It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, I know, I know! But hear me out. If you read this now, you will be ready to watch all the best 90s holiday movies there are. Don’t think of it like celebrating for Christmas but more like prepping for it! Here are two of the best 90s Christmas movies out there.

Home Alone

This classic is a must watch, if not a must watch every year. Home Alone’s main character, Kevin, is a nuisance. He’s always getting into his brother’s stuff, causing a ruckus, and driving the adults of the house crazy. And especially at Christmas! He’s mad about all of the cheese pizza getting eaten, throws a punch, milk gets spilled everywhere and the whole house in an uproar at dinner. His mom sends him to the attic being that the house is filled with guests and him and his family are supposed to fly to France the next day for Christmas. Well, the family goes on the trip but they forget Kevin, who wakes up to an empty house with no bossy parents and no mean big brothers. He’s in heaven until he realizes what he really wants for the holidays, his mom, his family, and the house clean and filled with Christmas Spirit.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

The same Kevin and the same crew, it’s a different year but the same criminals that tried to steal from kevin’s house that first Christmas are still on his tail. And he isn’t even in Chicago this time! Nope, he’s lost in New York. Lucky for Kevin, he may be lost but he won’t have to go without. He’s got enough cash and credit cards to make the city his personal playground. But the Wet Bandits, Harry and Marv, are on his trail. They are plotting a huge holiday heist this time but Kevin plans to outsmart them, just like last time. Or at least to get them with more booby traps.

There’s also a Home Alone 3 and a Home Alone 4, but the first is with different characters and it just doesn’t feel the same. And Home Alone 4 didn’t even come out in the 90s so just keep it to Home Alone 1 & 2.
