Its that time of year when we rewatch Home Alone and discover more things we never noticed every other year weve watched it.
Which has been 18 years (oh yeah, were talking a 1990 classic here). It really is the film that keeps on giving.
Now one punter has pointed out the fact the McCallister family house, which was the target of those two terrorising burglars intent on ruining Kevins night in, basically had Christmas vomit all over it.
Claire Reilly took to Twitter on Monday night to alert us to her most recent of epic pop culture brainwaves, which immediately piqued our interest.
Whats this? A theory or fact about a movie we dont yet know? Sign us up!
She wrote: Can we talk about the McAllisters house in Home Alone for a second? Like, of COURSE youre going to be a target for Christmas bandits if your house is ENTIRELY Christmas themed! Okay, yes, they have a lot of Christmas decorations up, but that is JUST THE START…
And it was just the start.
After this many, many images were added which backed up her claim, really cementing how much those McCallisters ruddy love Christmas – so much so they decorated their house to within an inch of its life and then swiftly abandoned it to fly overseas.
Go figure, eh?
Look at that wallpaper, Claire began. What kind of monster has red wallpaper next to a green wall? Offset with contrasting green house plant and red candles?
Side note: can you imagine having SO much money you can renovate your house, with fresh wallpaper and what not, just for the holidays? How the other half live.
Claire added: Yes, its the 90s, but who has a green LANDLINE PHONE? With red, white and green wallpaper?
And red flowers hanging from the bed above red pillows? Did they cast Catherine OHara purely because of her red hair? This goes all the way to the top…
But WORST of all is the kitchen, she continued. Red pots, green tiles, red teapot, crimson floors, even a green rolling pin. Guys. We all go to the themed sections of IKEA and get ideas, but youre not supposed to do it in real life. Home Alone: Great movie. Decorators nightmare. Fin.
Even the ruddy mannequins were in the chosen colours!
Punters were floored by her messages and rightly so. In the past weve spent the whole movie just musing on how this kid hasnt been killed by the too-keen burglars to even glance a minute at this Christmas Wonderland of a house.
I HAD NEVER EVEN NOTICED, one wrote, in all caps, so you know just how frantic he was about this.
Another mentioned Kevins wardrobe even reflects this holiday palette: I love that this was retweeted into my feed, because I have been obsessing on this fact since I was a kid! Did you notice the Xmas colours also extended to wardrobe? Kevin is alone for 3 days – day 1 he wears a white sweater, day 2 green sweater, day 3 red sweater. Diabolical.

Another was 100% on our wavelength as they wrote: Itd be insane enough for a regular family, but this is a family who isnt even going to be home for Christmas!
Because we assume youre all about to watch the film for the first of many festive viewings, we can only wish it has now been tainted with this new information that you cant unsee.
Sorry not sorry.
