Die Hard is not a Christmas movie, it just happened at Christmas/winter time.
I think that a movie has to be centered around Christmas to be considered a Christmas movie, the Christmas party was just something to get all the people in the building at once so the bad guys can hold them hostage.
Exactly … those who don’t see it probably miss all the Christmas undertones like.
His wife’s name is Holly. Who is being forced to work on Christmas Eve… Sound familiar?
John McClain is just trying to get home to his family for Christmas… typical Christmas theme and the movie has plenty of Christmas music in it too for the sappy types. The main theme of the movie is all about family getting together for Christmas.
There’s a grinch, Scrooge, villain, who is keeping John from getting home to his family for the holidays … bah humbug … and his attempts to ruin Christmas fail.
Then you have hints like Hans Gruber the villain - and the man who composed Silent Night is named Franz Gruber.
There’s a woman about to give birth in the movie which hints towards the birth of Christ.
Seriously how can you get anymore Christmasy than Die Hard!
Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie. And almost everybody knows it. In fact, a new poll by Morning Consultfound that, after years internet trolling on behalf of the cause, only 25 percent of Americans buy in. A whopping 62 percent say “No, no, no!”
