Every year around Christmas, the Internet has the same debate – can ‘Die Hard’ be considered a Christmas movie? It takes place on Christmas Eve, and we see some Santa hats in the movie, but the rest of it isn’t exactly “Christmas-y”. So what’s the answer?
My wife and I discuss this every year.
During the taping of The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis, which airs July 29, Willis reportedly ends the show by saying, “‘Die Hard’ isn’t a Christmas movie”
It’s unclear whether Willis just said that to get a rise out of people, or if he truly believes it. Either way, thanks to him, we’re having the argument and it’s still only the summer.
So… is ‘Die Hard’ a Christmas movie in your house?
