Home Alone fans are convinced they know why Kevin was left behind
Home Alone is a Christmas classic that we’ll never stop enjoying.
The 1990 film, starring Macaulay Culkin as eight-year-old Kevin McCallister who is left home alone at Christmas is a staple of the holiday season.
Every year we are just as baffled at how Kevin’s parents managed to forget their son on their trip to Paris.
Now, 30 years after the film was first released, eagle-eyed fans think they’ve discovered a detail which could help explain it.
Home Alone fans will remember the scene early on in the film where Kevin is sent to his room after he gets into a fight with his brother Buzz while they are eating pizza.
A bottle of fizzy drink is spilt all over the table, and the family scramble to clean everything up.
Home Alone fans have taken to Twitter to share a detail they spotted during this chaotic scene.
As Kevin’s dad cleans up the mess, he accidentally scoops up Kevin’s plane ticket and throws it away with the napkins.
We catch a quick glimpse of the plane ticket in the bin – but it’s over so quickly you can be forgiven if you missed it.

Be honest, did you already spot this detail or are you shocked right now? Let us know in the comments…
The next day, before they jet off to the airport, one of the neighbours is accidentally included in the headcount, which is another reason why the family thought he was with them.
This is the most obvious clue as to why they left their son.
But the missing ticket also helps explain why they didn’t spot Kevin was missing earlier.
One Twitter user said: “I have seen Home Alone probably 1 billion times, but was today years old when I realised they threw out Kevin's plane ticket during the pizza debacle and that's why no one figured out he was gone earlier at, like, the airport."
Another said: “Watching Home Alone for the 50th time and I’ve never noticed that in the starting scene when there is a fight in the kitchen, Kevin’s ticket is put in the bin. Who knew?”
A third added: "I have watched home alone at least 3 times a year for the last 30 years and have only just realised that they throw Kevin's plane ticket in the bin at the start!!!”
