@5 Oh, please... Even in communist era Poland wasn't totally cut off from the Hollywood movies, at least in 1970's and 80's. American (and western, in general) films used to hit local screens with some delay (a year or two - AFAIK I've seen "Star Wars" in 1979, "Alien" in 1982; "Apocalypse Now" was in cinemas when martial law was introduced in 1981), but quite a lot of hit movies were present in cinemas. So "Home Alone" definitely wasn't "one of the first western films shown in the country". But, as a matter of fact, every year in Christmas season at least one of local TV stations airs this film, as well as "Love actually", and some others. It became some sort of a "modern tradition". ;-P

# 5. Home Alone is a National Treasure in Poland - that's so true. One TV Station shows "Home Alone" (pol."Kevin sam w domu") every eyar around CHristmas. First "Home alone"
was showed at Christmas Eve and "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" ("Kevin sam w Nowym Yorku") at New Year's Eve. Then tv station changed it and now thera are showed earlier (tv ratings i guess was not good enymore). but when it's christmas time in Poland there's "home" alone in TV.
