'Home Alone' Fans Are Only Just Noticing This Huge Detail In Kevin's House

Home Alone is a Christmas staple, but despite the fact that fans have had the flick on repeat this festive season, they are only just noticing a pretty strange detail about the house itself.


We all know the story but for those who don't, the beloved movie follows the tale of Kevin McAllistair, who is accidentally left behind by his parents at Christmas, as he tries to defend himself and his home against two nasty burglars.

But if you can manage to tear yourself away from the outrageous storyline itself, you will actually notice that there is something pretty quirky going on with the house's decor.

Pretty much the entire house is decorated in red and green, and not just the Christmas decorations either. From the wallpaper to the kitchen counters and cupboards, the house is plastered in the most Christmassy colours around.

A fan of the show took to Twitter to share a number of stills from the movie to make their point.

They wrote: "Can we talk about the McAllister's house in Home Alone for a second? Like, of COURSE you're 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..."

The user went on to list and unpick all the furnishings in the McAllistair's home.

"Look at that wallpaper. What kind of monster has red wallpaper next to a green wall? Offset with contrasting green house plant and red candles?" the user wrote.

They continued: "Yes, it's 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 O'Hara purely because of her red hair? This goes all the way to the top..."

Finishing their Twitter thread, the Home Alone fan concluded: "But WORST of all is the kitchen. 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 you're not supposed to do it in real life.

"Home Alone: Great movie. Decorator's nightmare."

The thread prompted uproar from other fans, who all began sharing their own stills from the movie full of red and green decor.
