Revisiting - Home Alone

10:50 PM


I just saw one of my favorite childhood/slash/Christmas movie - Home Alone. It brings back so many memories. I was almost 8 years old when the movie came out. It was one of the first movies, I believe, I owned the video of (Remember the days of VCR and Cassettes, people?).


As a child I have grown-up in a big family filled with aunts, uncles, cousins and grand-parents. We lived in a pretty-big house considering it was about 15 of us inhabiting it. After viewing the movie I often wondered what it would be like to have the whole house to myself? ... run up-and-down the three storey building and make a big commotion ... may be put on loud music, ... watch television non-stop (until we turned teenager we were only allowed to watch 30 minutes of cartoon on television, on weekdays and an hour on weekends *distressed.face*), ... have ice-cream and chocolates for all my meals (we were only given 2 sticks of Kit-Kat every Sunday, imagine?). Well, it never happened, I was never Home Alone! Problem with having such a big family, living together, is that someone or the other is always at one's disposal to baby-sit. Or even worse - I had two younger brothers whom I had to baby-sit, incase all the grown-ups (together) were missing!

Irony of the whole situation is that now I am Home-Alone all the time and to tell you the truth, it is not half as much fun as I had imagined it to be ... I had hoped for the-kinda-stuff Macaulay Culkin was doing, almost 20 years back!. However, I still wanna go back home ... and then be Home-Alone! ... sounds crazy? Well, you never know, it might be fun. I am still a kid (at heart)! Nonetheless, such a sweet movie ... such a brave kid ... perfect for Christmas spirit ... still Love it!

P.S. Kevin McCallister (played by Macaulay Culkin) : "You guys give up yet? Or are you thirsty for more?"
