As you might already know, "Home Alone" became a household name thanks to the 1990 classic movie where a young Macaulay Culkin, as Kevin McCallister, hilariously defended his home from two persistent burglars in a series of messy traps. The iconic film, where Kevin thinks he made his family disappear, has stood the test of time and is still a Christmas favorite that takes us back to our childhood, am I right?

Just imagine walking up the same steps, that were once icy, that led the mischievous Wet Bandits down a spiral of misfortunate and painful events.

Now, imagine lounging in the same family room where Kevin McCallister and his entire family gathered to open Christmas presents on a cold winter night.

Also, let's not forget the iconic kitchen scene, a place where you could be whipping up a holiday feast of your own in the gourmet kitchen that could rival anything the McCallisters ever dreamt of.
