No, Die Hard Is Not A Christmas Movie - Amy Brooks

When you think of Christmas movies, what comes to mind?  A Christmas StoryThe Grinch Who Stole ChristmasHome Alone?  Yeah me too.  The big question mark for me is when some wanna call Die Hard a Christmas movie.  No.  Just no.

In fact seems to be the latest controversy threatening to tear this country apart - should Die Hard be considered a Christmas movie?

One the one hand, the movie does take place around Christmas.  But on the other hand, it's far from a heartwarming holiday tale. I mean nothing screams Christmas more than a group of terrorists holding a bunch of people hostage on Christmas Eve.

Turns out most Americans don't consider it a holiday film! (Yay, people do have 1/2 a brain after all).  A recent poll from the Hollywood Reporter found 62% of people said Die Hard isn't a Christmas movie, while only 25% said it is.

And this probably won't surprise you - men were more likely to consider Die Hard a Christmas movie than women, and people aged 30-44 were more likely to say yes than people over 55.

So where do you come in on this?  Do you consider Die Hard a Christmas movie?

Yeah I thought so. 😉
