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...
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?
Throw up a festive green tapestry in the green corridor on the way to your attic, why not!
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...
"Why is there so much Christmas theming, Harry?!"
"I have been here for three days by myself and I've finally worked out why you let them film a Christmas movie here..."
"Tell the truth. Did you just decorate this place as an elaborate con to leave me at Christmas time?"
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.

Okay, one more, just for good measure.

Merry Christmas ya filthy animals.
