Nothing says Christmas movie like a high body count and an expletive laden catchphrase, amiright?
Firstly, let me say that Die Hard is a great movie. But it’s not a great Christmas movie. Now, while it may seem obvious to Christians who take the celebration of the birth of our savior as sort of a big deal that “Die Hard” is not a Christmas movie, we should spelunk into that cinematic silliness and dispel all the arguments that would have you believe that the freeing of Nakatomi Plaza by a wise-cracking off-duty police officer is a Christmas movie.
I’ve scoured the internet and discovered some of the major reasons some posit that “Die Hard” is indeed a Christmas movie. Let’s counter them, shall we?
