It’s officially the holiday season! I don’t know about you but I absolutely love this time of year. Sipping hot chocolate, wrapped in a warm fuzzy blanket curled up on the couch, and watching Christmas movies.
One of my all-time favorite holiday films is Home Alone, starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCalister, a kid who is unexpectedly left home alone after his family rushes out of the house to try and catch the plane for their upcoming vacation.
Well, to get us into the holiday spirit, Catherine O’Hara, known for portraying Kevin’s mother in the film, posted a video to TikTok recreating one of the famous scenes from the movie!
The TikTok video shows O’Hara side by side with her character from the sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. The famous scene that she is reenacting is when O’Hara’s character realizes she lost her son for a second time, while taking their Christmas family vacation. Once the reality hits her, she screams and then quickly faints.
In case you’ve never seen the holiday classic, the official movie description for Home Alone reads:
When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.
Home Alone is now streaming on Disney+. If you aren’t yet signed up for the streaming service, you can get started here.
