Well hello friends out there in internet land! It seems that, in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and its various and sundry trappings and festivities, I seem to have neglected this particular corner of the world wide web. Well I'm about to make up for it, because in the spirit of Christmas, I'm going to share with you a secret that's been kept tightly under wraps for over 20 years.
What's the greatest Christmas movie of all time? Well, the correct answer is A Christmas Story, but I know there are quite a few who identify Home Alone as such, and for those people, that movie is the subject of today's discussion. Thanks to Buzzfeed, I discovered something I never realized about the movie. Check out this screenshot from near the beginning of the film, when a bunch of stuff gets knocked over, spilled, and then wiped up.

SUDDENLY IT BECOMES CLEAR! They don't know Kevin is missing because HIS DAD THREW AWAY HIS AIRLINE TICKET!
Of all the bold claims Buzzfeed has ever made... this one was actually true. This IS something I never noticed about Home Alone.
