And it’s been part of our holiday season for 30 years.

Yep, that's three decades.

Since it’s been a really long time since we were first introduced to the McCallister family, we thought we’d see what the McCallister clan are up to now.

Here’s what we discovered:

Macaulay Culkin (Kevin McCallister)

Macaulay Culkin was just 10 years old when he rose to fame as Kevin McCallister when Home Alone was released in 1990.

He also appeared in the film's sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York in 1992.

At the height of his fame, Macaulay was often referred to as the most successful child actor since Shirley Temple – after Home Alone, the child star appeared in My Girl, The Good Son, The Pagemaster, and Richie Rich.

Now 40 years old, Macaulay has largely turned away from acting, instead turning his attention to music, becoming the frontman of a Velvet Underground cover band called The Pizza Underground, and running a lifestyle blog and podcast called Bunny Ears.

The former child star also famously dated Mila Kunis from 2002 until late 2010 and was a very close friend of Michael Jackson.

In 2017, Macaulay started dating Brenda Song, who he met on the set of Changeland.
