I’m obsessed with Christmas movies. And Christmas music. And Christmas in general. I have a spreadsheet of 48 holiday movies/specials, and I time our December to fit in as many of them as possible. One of the must-haves is the film “Home Alone.” It’s been a favorite of mine since I was younger, and it just doesn’t feel like Christmas until it’s been viewed at least once.
Not only do I love the film, but I love John Williams’ score and theme. When I was in high school, my then-boyfriend and I used to plan elaborate Christmas parties and go all-out decorating his parents’ basement to entertain our friends. While we decorated, we would always have the Home Alone soundtrack playing in the background. Those were some good times. And seriously, in my book, you can never go wrong with John Williams.
