“I know I don’t deserve a Christmas, even if I did do a good deed. I don’t want any presents. Instead, I want to take back every mean thing I ever said to my family. Even if they don’t take back the things they said to me. I don’t care. I love all of them… Including Buzz. I know it isn’t possible to see them all. Could I just see my mother? I’ll never want another thing as long as I live if I can just see my mother. I know I won’t see her tonight, but promise me I can see her again. Sometime. Any time. Even if it’s just once and only for a couple minutes. I just need to tell her I’m sorry.”

Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin)

Kate McCallister (Catherine O’Hara) searches in vain for her son, Kevin (Macaulay Culkin), in New York. She’s chasing down Times Square, but he’s not there.

Then she talks to a policeman. He’s walking her around to help her. She then has a flash of lucidity: he is in front of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center.

Meanwhile, the little boy makes a wish in front of the tree to see his family again, especially his mother.

The reunion took place at the foot of the GE Building. Kate forgives her son and takes him back to the hotel where the whole family is reunited.

30 000

That’s the number of lights in the Rockefeller Center tree.

A true tradition since 1931, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is one of the most famous in the United States. Each year it is carefully selected from the forests of neighbouring countries and measures between 23 and 27 metres.
