Everyone wants to be home for the holidays.
Unsurprisingly, many Christmas movies are based on families getting together for the holidays. This has resulted in many of the most popular vacation movies being based in iconic homes.
Whether it’s Macaulay Culkin left behind while his family goes on vacation or Arnold Schwarzenegger trying to give his son the perfect gift, many of these films have been shot in real homes and places.
Alone at home
The McCallisters’ home in “Home Alone” is a real home located in Winnetka, Illinois. Fortunately, the area is not known to be the target of bandits. The house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Additionally, none of the doorknobs are electrified or overheated, and there are no giant spiders roaming the hallways.

A Christmas story
Anyone who had cable in the late 90s and early 2000s saw this movie multiple times. The iconic movie house, located in Cleveland, Ohio, has been restored and a dedicated movie museum has also been opened across the street. Customers visiting the house may notice a memorable lamp in one of the windows.
Jingle All the Way
In this 1996 classic, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a father too focused on his work to hang out with his son or give him a Christmas present. Fortunately, his character’s workaholic nature paid off, and he was able to afford a beautiful home with four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The current home is located in Edina, Minneapolis and is valued at over $ 2.5 million.

“Die Hard” takes place during Christmas and it’s a Christmas movie. The film takes place in the fictional Nakatomi Plaza, located in Los Angeles.
