Has This Finally Settled the Die Hard Christmas Movie Debate? You Decideby

There are few debates which divide so many people on a global scale. One issue, or debate, has been raging on for years and years – and with the advent of the internet, the discussion has only gotten fierier – we are of course referring to the ongoing scuffle that appears to be taking place between those who believe Die Hard to be a Christmas movie, and those who don’t. Whether or not you actually like the movie – the first outing for Bruce Willis’ have-a-go-hero John McClane – it’s likely you’ll be able to form a clear opinion on this matter based on the facts.

The facts are thus – Die Hard takes place at Nakatomi Plaza on Christmas Eve. While the movie isn’t themed around the holiday season nor does it make any attempts to shoehorn Christmas themes into the main script, the action quite clearly takes place at a certain time of year – it’s unavoidable, in fact – and to that end, many, many fans have disputed for the decision that the movie should be classed as a Christmas movie to be enjoyed annually across the ages.

However, a recent Comedy Central roast of Bruce Willis seemed to give the opposite opinion a platform. Willis himself said as much at the end of the roast: “Die Hard is not a Christmas movie.” These words have been leapt upon by those who disagree with the growing sentiment – those who feel that just because it’s set at Christmas, doesn’t make it a holiday movie – and it’s left the other side of the argument feeling rather deflated. However, Die Hard’s screenwriter took to Twitter to advise otherwise. “How could it not be a Christmas movie?” Steven E de Souza claimed on the social platform.

It’s thought that those who believe Die Hard is indeed a Christmas movie are in the minority, at least according to polling by YouGov. A recent poll found that just 31% of people asked believed that movies set at Christmas were automatically granted ‘Christmas movie status’. Where does Home Alone fit into things? Who’s to say – but it is rather telling that showings of Die Hard on network TV and on video streaming appear to pop up when the season is in full flow. Where do you stand on this debate? Do you always save Die Hard for Christmas Eve?
