Many Christmas movies, like 'Home Alone' and 'Christmas Vacation' are based around families getting together for the holidays.
Whether it’s Macaulay Culkin being left behind while his family goes on vacation or Arnold Schwarzenegger trying to get the perfect gift for his son, many of these films were shot in real homes and locations.
The McCallister’s house in "Home Alone" is a real house located in Winnetka, Illinois. Fortunately, the area isn’t known for being targeted by bandits. The house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Also, none of the doorknobs are electrified or overheated and there aren’t any giant spiders wandering the halls.
